Does anyone know if the this tool moves My Documents, the Desktop, and other such items when moving over the user profile?

Thank you.

Ok, I tried and it didn't move any of the My Docs or anything off the desktop.  Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks.

We have two products that do two different things. The Transfer Wizard - Transwiz.exe - creates a transfer file so that you can move a profile to another machine. User Profile Wizard - Profwiz.exe - allows you to use an existing profile with a different account.
 
What is it you need to do?

I want to transfer a users file from machine to another.  But I'd like to get all their documents, pictures, favorites, etc... to go along with it.  When I first tired this out, I was able to get the user profile and any PSTs for Outlook to transfer over, but any documents, pictures, etc... didn't go with it.

Thanks.

That shouldn't of happened Unhappy You should have had your "My Documents" transferred.
 
One thing to check: make sure that the "My Documents" folder has not been made "private" using Simple File Sharing: there could have been a security issue stoping the files being accessed.

Ok, I redid the profile move and in the zip file, is My Documents.mydocs*.  I unzip that folder and nothing is in there.  What next?

If you are consistently getting an error it probably means there is a file in "My Documents" that is causing the problem.
