Maintaining security during and after user state migration is a significant issue. In particular, take into consideration these issues:

  • Typically, the Access Control Lists (ACLs) associated with files and folders are not migrated, so the ACLs must be restored or recreated.

  • Encrypting File System (EFS) information is not migrated, and encryption that occurs during migration affects who can read the files in their new destinations.

  • In some organizations, it is deemed critical to secure user state during a migration.
