Issue



You need to know if you can transfer shortcut files to you client machines using the Ghost Console. You want to know if you'll be able to use either a User Migration task or a Transfer Files task to accomplish this.


Solution



The User Migration and Transfer Files task were designed to transfer actual files. Since shortcuts are not considered files, the Ghost Console will likely not be able to transfer these types of files on a consistent basis. This process may work in some circumstances but we cannot guarantee that it will work 100% of the time.
