Symantec User Migration (SUM) is a great tool to pull a users files, icons, registry settings and Windows settings and put them in a nice and neat little file. They can either then be saved as a backup or installed onto another PC.

The Following back files are what I use to capture and restore a users settings. I keep them out on the network for easy access. Also please note I have SUM installed on the network server and a custom SCMMigrationOptions.xml is being used.

To Capture I use:

@echo off
echo "This will use SUM Wizard to capture a users data for Desktops"
echo "Enter name "
set /p UserName=

echo "Saving to \\Server\share\User_Migration\%UserName%.ump
pause
"
\\Server\share\SUM\User Migration Wizard\SUMWizard.exe" /action:create /pkg:\\Server\share\User_Migration\%UserName%.ump  /profiletype:domain  /autoclose:10

And to Restore I use:

@echo off
echo "This will use SUM Wizard to restore a users data for Desktops"
echo "Enter name "
set /p UserName=

echo "restoring from \\Server\share\User_Migration\%UserName%.ump
pause
"\\Server\share\SUM\User Migration Wizard\SUMWizard.exe" /action:restore /pkg:\\Server\share\User_Migration\%UserName%.ump /autoclose:10 /replacefiles:never

Please note, there are many more custom switches you can use, such as adding passwords to these files. The switches can either be seen by running SUMWizard.exe with a /? or in the SUM manual.
