User State Migration Toolkit
Earlier this year Microsoft released an update to USMT 4.0, adding support for Office 2010 and a few other minor updates:
- The XML rules included in the default Migapp.xml file are updated to include new rules that support migrating Office 2010 application settings.
- Changes that resolve an issue that creates many temporary files, that does not correctly remove the temporary files in a hard-link migration, and that causes poor LoadState performance.
- An issue that prevents migration in certain time zones is corrected.
You can download the update from Here.
Richard Smith has created a great video on how to get started with USMT 4.0.

About this Video
User State Migration Tool (USMT) 4.0 is a scriptable command-line tool that provides a highly-customizable user-profile migration experience for IT professionals. USMT includes two components, ScanState and LoadState, and a set of modifiable .xml files: MigApp.xml, MigUser.xml, and MigDocs.xml. In addition, you can create custom .xml files to support your migration needs. You can also create a Config.xml file to specify files or settings to exclude from the migration. In More >
If you want to migrate settings and data when migration from Windows XP or Windows Vista to Windows 7, you need to use the User State Migration Toolkit 4.0 (USMT). USMT is a free download that is part of the Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK or WAIK) for Windows 7. Windows AIK for Windows 7 is included in Configuration Manager 2007 SP2 RC, so if you’ve installed Service Pack 2, you don’t need to download and install Windows AIK.
