About sepago Profile Migrator
sepago, inventors of the Citrix User Profile Manager, offer a new solution for profile migration from today: For the first time, Profile Migrator enables network administrators to migrate user settings for Windows operating systems as well as for arbitrary windows-based applications on clients and servers. The effect: Users familiarize themselves with their new work environment more quickly and don’t need to embark on their own time-consuming restoration of their personal settings. The increased business continuity significantly reduces the cost of migration for large enterprises. Profile Migrator supports system changeovers to Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2, the virtualization of desktops and servers and the introduction of 64 bit systems. Apart from the operating system change, the software also permits migration of the user settings if version upgrades of widespread programs are undertaken. As administrators select their users’ applications that are to be migrated, the migration of the settings simultaneously results in a profile clean-up. The program is now available for download from www.profilemigrator.com for a free 30-day evaluation.
