Windows Migrations With CPMigrator 3.x Lab

Solution Overview

CPMigrator® is a portable, enterprise-class software solution developed to enable organizations of all complexities to better manage the refresh and migration of their end-user-based Windows systems. CPMigrator® can be used to migrate one or multiple users’ data and settings from one OS to another OS on the same PC, to another PC, or lay down a fresh OS on a clean bare-metal PC. 

Migrations are managed using a combination of global settings and custom-configured migration templates. Once configured, each template contains all the settings needed to successfully complete a migration. 

CPMigrator® has the ability to save user data (e.g. Word, Excel and .pst files) as well as many user settings, such as an Outlook signature, frequently used contacts, persistent mapped drives and desktop personalization settings (e.g. the wallpaper, the screen saver and Windows color scheme). CPMigrator® is extremely flexible and granular on what it will include and exclude in the migration, so it is important that it is configured correctly by an administrator prior to deployment.
