USMT - Query RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are observing large amount of data from USMT backup

    Is there a way to find which file type  contributes more to size ?

    Example : Is there any command which shows me what files or file types or folders  in the USMT is consuming more space? This will help to analyse and optimise the script accordingly.

  • I'm not sure about exactly that, but have you tried just extracting the mig file to see what's in it? You might need to create some excludes if it's backing up stuff you don't want it to.
