Creating Custom Migration Path

Created: 12 Feb 2013 • Updated: 12 Feb 2013 | 1 comment


I'll make this really short and Simple.

While creating new Migration Template, i can Choose "Groups" like $Desktop$,$Document$, etc...
What i would like to know is, is it possible to create Custom Location like &Downloads$, which will backup the Path of Dowload Folder of Users.

Another thing is, When Restoring Migration Packages, from XP to Windows 7, i would like to change the Restoring Path for some Files. Specaily the outlook files, in XP its location is in C:\...\Local Setting\.. but in Win 7 default location is in My Document. The Problem is when i restore the XP Package to Win 7, Ghost choose the location C:\...\AppData\.. so would like to know it possible to change this path before restoring?

Thank You

I suspect the answer is no, as I expect that Ghost is reading the location of these system/user folders from the shell folder locations stored in the registry.
