XP to Windows 7 Data Migration - "Specify Destination Path" Option Not Working
I am working on migrating several hundred computers from Windows XP to Windows 7. I want to capture the user data, shortcuts, etc. that are located on the user's XP desktop profile and restore it to a folder named "Old" on the user's Windows 7 desktop.
When I go into Symantec Ghost Console>Configuration Resources>User Migration Templates>Files and Folders tab, I click the Add button and add $MyDesktop$ as the Path for what to backup. Towards the bottom of this window, I checkmark the box that reads, "Specify destination path". I have tried several combinations at this point. I have tried specifying the destination path as:
C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Old\ (just to see if it would work)
C:\Users\Public\Desktop\ (just to see if it would work)
$Music$ (just to see if it would work)
I export the template to a USB thumbdrive with the User Migration Wizard and save it in E:\Ghost Solution Suite 2.5\User Migration Wizard\xml. I leave the file named SCMMigrationOptions.xml. I run the wizard and select for it to perform a Restore.
It doesn't matter what I set as the destination, it always restores the files to the desktop of the profile it was created from. It completely ignores whatever I set for the destination. I might as well not even select anything for the destination. The documentation says that you should be able to set a custom destination. ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/english_us_canada/products/symantec_ghost_solution_suite/2.0/manuals/SUM_User_Guide.pdf (see page 30 under Restoring Users).
Can anyone think of any reason for why the "Specify destination path" would not work? I am new to using this tool as we are evaluating tools for user data migration. This one was a favorite, until I ran into this issue.
