    What are your views on this? Have you had any problems with it before?
    What my situation is, I am currently renewing PC's at work and spend a lot of time at users desk setting up email, printers and various settings. With this tool i need not do that. it seems too good to be true!
    Please let me know how you have got on with it.

    cheers

    We only use it for XP to Win 7 migration, has worked fine previously.

    Other than that we use OSD and capture user state for win7 - win7 rebuilds

    I've only used the previous version (fast) for xp in a production environment, when migrating users from one pc to another. worked fine for me It gives you a consistant profile migration which whilst you can do it manually you may forget things like copying the desktop across printers etc.

    In short it worked well for me and I liked liked it because I didn't have to think that much about it.

    Works great except if Outlook has an exchange account. We've found that in those cases we've had to re-setup outlook again on the new machine. However with POP3/IMAP accounts it's fine.

    We use exchange, and it transferred that over fine.
    Had 1 today that would not connect to the new one tho :( but still im liking it, all the builds im doing are win7 from XP so its nice i can copy mapped drives, printers, files, desktop and only worry about configuring cad and stuff.
    Ill keep going with it i think and see how i get on

    You should look into sysprep and having pre-configured configurations or images. Windows 7 has a lot of options to speed system deployment up.
