Why can't I filter users based on last accessed in Windows XP?

Solution



PC Transplant checks the last accessed date on the ntuser.dat file to determine last accessed date of the user account. 

As of Windows XP, the system periodically reads the ntuser.dat file of all users on the system.  This changes the last accessed date and thus breaks PCT's ability to migrate based on last accessed.
