File Transfer Wizard for Multiple Users


T

I believe I made a conceptual error regarding use of the File Transfer
Wizard. I initiated the wizard from my login, but assumed that ALL users
settings and data would be transferred. The resulting file was very large
(80+ Gb), which would easily account for all data for both users & the
shared/public directory. However, when I unpacked the data file all the data
files were not present in the two user directories and the shared folders
were nowhere to be found. Is there some alternate approach to unpacking the
data file?

FAST Wizard has to be run for each user. If you only ran it for one, that's
the only files you'll get. It gets the user data from the whole drive - not
just documents and settings - so it will scan and get - for example, all
*.doc, *.jpg, *.mp3, etc files on the system that the logged in user has
access to.

So you should refer to the other backups you made/have available for other
files.
