    Default When to use Offline Migration?

    Hello everyone,

    Sorry for another noob question, but I just coudn't find anywhere the reason as to WHY we would use Offline Migration ? Is it a means of migrating data on the same computer while a new OS installs? Sorry if this is a stupid questions i just needed to clear this up.

    Thanks

    Yep, if you are migrating data on to the same computer you can use an Offline Migration. It's best explained in the link below...

    Common Migration Scenarios
    Scenario Three: Offline migration using Windows PE

    A company is allocating 20 new computers to users in the accounting department. The users all have one computer with their files and settings. In this scenario, each user's one computer will serve as both the source and destination computer.
    • On each source computer, an administrator boots the machine into Windows PE and runs ScanState to collect the user state to either a server or external hard disk.
    • On each new computer, an administrator installs the company's standard operating environment which includes Windows 7, Microsoft® Office, and other company applications.
    • On each of the new computers, an administrator runs the LoadState tool, restoring the user state from the migration store to the new computer.
