a. Validate your scanstate/loadstate rules – despite what you may think, you might be gathering all profiles and not just fresh ones. Review: http://blogs.technet.com/b/askds/archive/2011/05/05/usmt-and-u-migrating-only-fresh-domain-prof... . Hopefully that cuts you down to way fewer than 100 per machine. Read that post carefully, there are some serious gotchas: such as once you run scanstate once on a computer, all profiles are made fresh afterwards for any subsequent scanstate runs. The odds that all 100+ profiles are actually active is pretty unlikely.
b. Get rid of old XP profiles with DELPROF before using USMT at all. This is safer than UEL, as like I mentioned, once you run scanstate that’s it – it has to work perfectly on the first try, as all profiles are now “fresh”. (On Vista+ you instead use http://support.microsoft.com/kb/940017 , as I’m sure you remember)
c. Get more RAM.
Just to make myself feel better: “Little roller up along first. Behind the bag! It gets through Buckner!”
Yes, it’s the all new, all web Microsoft Safety Scanner . It even has a gigantic button, so you know it’s gotta be good. Make those noobs mash it and tell you if there are any problems while you go make a sandwich.
