This task was embarked on in order to exported user profile from one device to another for AssignedAccess (Kiosk mode). FrontFace Lockdown Tool provides this functionality by default.
If this SCENARIO does not apply to you, please see the other steps below on how to migrate a Windows Profile from one device to another. For how to export a specific user profile, see the steps below.
The Windows Easy Transfer tool has been discontinued in Windows 10. It is worth noting that Microsoft accounts are relatively easy to move to a different PC. With Windows 8, you have the possibility to sign in with a Microsoft account across all (any) device would transfer many of your settings.
In order to transfer your defined settings and local user profiles from an old PC to a new one, here are some tools that are capable of doing this.
- PCmover Express: One of the ways to accomplish this is by using the PCmover Express. Microsoft has partnered with Laplink to bring you PCmover Express which is a very tool for transferring selected files, folders, and more from your old Windows PC to your new Windows 10 PC. https://pcmover-10.laplink.com/
- UMST: Helps backup and restore user data.
- SyncBack: For more information, see the following link.
- Transwiz: It also requires a manual move of certain files.
Note: Transwiz can’t transfer a profile if you’re currently signed into it https://www.forensit.com/move-computer.html
Alternatively, you could convert your Local Account to a Microsoft Account. I would not recommend this, because not all settings will be moved when you convert your local account to a Microsoft account.
