Since Microsoft issued some updates right after windows Vista came out Files and Settings transfer wizard stopped working correctly on windows XP. Here is the error:
The location that you specified does not contain stored information
I do not know what might have caused the problem but I do know the solution to get around this, here is the procedure.
From the computer you want to transfer the data from, run the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard by going to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools and save the data file to your preferred location.
After you have finished the transfer, go to C:\WINDOWS\system32 and copy the USMT folder (and everything in it) to the location you saved the USMT2.UNC file. Now when you run the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard from the computer you want to transfer the data to, go to the USMT folder location you saved above, and click on “migwiz“ and that should start the normal Files and Settings Transfer Wizard from that location.
Please remember to point to the location at the root, for example if you save your data at X:\nelson\USMT2.UNC, then point the location to X:\ NOT to X:\nelson\USMT2.UNC. The wizard should find the data automatically. Hope that helps!
