The Workstation Migration Assistant is a visual wrapper for Microsoft’s User State Migration Tool, designed to simplify the capture / restore process for your end-users, and at the same time being highly configurable so that it can be customised to suit your organisations needs. Some of it’s features include:

 Ã‚· Migrate via a pre-defined network storage location, external USB drive, or user-specified location. USB drive detection is automatic, and you can decide whether drives below a certain size are ignored (ie, memory sticks)
 Ã‚· Optional Hard Disk Health Check will run a CHKDSK prior to capture and fix errors if any are found
 Ã‚· Optional Encryption using a pre-defined company encryption key, or per-user customised encryption (for highly sensitive data that can’t be stored on a server without being encrypted)
 Ã‚· Use different configurations for “XP Only” (XP > XP) migrations via Standard (XP > Vista and Vista > Vista)
 Ã‚· Automatically run pre and post-capture / restore scripts and programs (very useful to further configure machine settings)
 Ã‚· Migrate domain only accounts, or domain and local
 Ã‚· Automatically exclude certain domain or local accounts from the migration
 Ã‚· Automatically send log files to an e-mail address via SMTP after the migration
 Ã‚· On-screen status during every stage of the migration, including ETA
 Ã‚· Option to limit migrations to a certain size, i.e. if over 20GB of data to backup, then fail and inform user. This is also overridable
 Ã‚· Automatic checks for USMT installation and optional download
 Ã‚· Command-line automation
