USMT – User State Migration Tools

Short for User State Migration Tools, it is a tool that allows a system administrator to migrate user configuration setting and files from systems running Windows 95 or later to a clean Windows XP installation. USMT is designed for use by system administrators when performing large deployments of Windows XP Professional in a corporate environment. Microsoft recommends that home users and small businesses who need to migrate files and settings without the support of an IT department should use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard.
