Has anyone used Transwiz (Professional) successfully in conjunction with PDQ Deploy to transfer a profile from a remote PC?

I have created a job in PDQ that copies the Transwiz deployment folder up to the remote PC, and then issues the Transwiz command on the remote PC - something like this:

cd \Users\pdq\AppData\Local\Temp\Transwiz\
.\transwiz.exe /BACKUP /TRANSFERFILE \\MYSERVER\archive\users\ /SOURCEACCOUNT MYDOMAIN\user /LOG \\MYSERVER\archive\users\transwiz-user.log

The job launches and runs, and I can see the Transwiz process running on the remote PC.  I can also see the log file is written to successfully on "MYSERVER" and has the contents:

ForensiT Transwiz v1.17.1094
Licensed to XXX XXXXXXXX (1 User) Serial No. XXXXXXXX
Copyright (c) 2006-2020 ForensiT Ltd

Packing transfer file for MYDOMAIN\user... 

However the zip file is never created on "MYSERVER" and the Transwiz process on the remote PC seems to run indefinitely with no output created.  This is a fresh test profile and only ~0.5GB so it shouldn't take more than a minute or two to copy but it's still running after an hour.

The Transwiz.config file that gets deployed contains domain admin credentials (although I'm not sure they are needed since we're not joining).  And the PDQ service account that runs the task has domain and local admin privs on the remote PC, and also has access to write to the share on "MYSERVER".

Has anyone ever made this work (or something similar), or have any suggestions?

Thanks very much!
