    I'm retiring my current Internet/email/utility PC, and using Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to move Outlook Express and Internet Explorer settings to the "new" Internet PC. (a Dell Dimension 2400 that has been around a few years being used for other tasks). Collecting the old settings was no problem, the IMG00001.DAT file may be a little large at 239 Meg. I threw the USMT2.UNC folder onto a CD and took that CD to the new PC. That was Wednesday, Files and Settings Transfer Wizard has been running on the new PC for 3 1/2 days now, with Task Manager showing migwiz.exe at 99% CPU usage for that entire time. Windows XP Home on both PCs. I'm getting ready to give up and was wondering what experience you have had with FAST Wizard.

    The one guess I can make is that my old PC has IE 7, and the new Internet has IE 6, from a fresh Windows install from a Service Pack 2 CD-ROM. It would be exactly like Microsoft to not put error handling into FAST Wizard to handle that scenario.

    thanks!
