When performing a scanstate with just winpe in offline mode, and saving the information to a network share. Not all the user information and data seems to be getting saved. When restoring on a different machine, not all the user profiles or data comes back.
When I open the saved mig file with windows easy transfer wizard the only item that shows is Shared items.
Below is part of the script for the winpe I've been working on. The strange part is that when I run the same script on the xp machine when running (removing the /offlinewindir ) ; there is no data loss and I can see all users on a different machine in the Easy transfer wizard.
scanstate.exe \\networkfileserver\migrate\pcname /o /c /i:%pathtomig%MigApp.xml /i:%pathtomig%MigUser.xml /offlineWinDir:C:\windows /all /V:5 /l:\\networkfileserver\migrate\pcname\scanstate.log
What am i missing?

Firstly, would you please let us know what kind of user information and data seems not being saved.
Meanwhile, based on my knowledge, if you would like to migrate data or settings which are not included by default, you may need to create a Config.xml file.
More details, Using USMT.
Also, you can check if there is any error in the USMT log.
Hope this helps.

A full user profile under documents and settings are not being saved. Also, the users in the hklm \profile information is not being migrated either.
What is strange is that when I run the same command minus the offline switch in the host win xp, everything works as expected.
