In MDT 2012 Update 1, there is a new wizard page: Move Data and Settings. We want to use this page, but not the User Data (Restore) page. However, the SkipUserData property controls the appearance of both pages; it seems you can either show both pages or hide both pages.
Have I missed something? Is there a relatively simple way to show the Move Data and Settings page without showing the User Data (Restore) page?

There are a couple of ways you could go about this. I'll just detail the easiest one here though:
Fire up \scripts\DeployWiz_Definition_ENU.xml
Scroll down to the section that begins with <Pane id="OfflineUserData" reference="DeployWiz_OfflineData.xml">
And either delete the words "UCase(Property("SkipUserData"))<>"YES" and " or else just change the variable to something else - such as "SkipUserData" so you can still control it if you like.
Hope this helps

so you want to backup and never restore data ?
if so I would suggest to use a default value for UserDataLocation/UDDIR/UDSHARE and keep SkipUserData, that would prevent you from modifying native MDT files that could be overwritten at the next MDT update.

We use roaming profiles and never use the replace scenario, but occasionally refreshing without reformatting would be helpful.
