Windows Explorer Quick Access

 
Want to migrate Windows Explorer Quick Access shortcuts? In some scenarios you can.
 
In Windows 10, the Quick Access shortcuts are stored in 'automatic destinations-ms' files, which contain user specific paths. This means, if you are not redirecting users (no changes to the user profile path C:\Users\<username>) then you can migrate these Win10 to Win10 using File Rules in Migration Manager. If the user profile path does change from the old to new computer, shortcuts to those locations will not carry over.
Quick access in Windows 7 is stored differently and cannot be migrated to Windows 10.
 
For Windows 10 with no profile path changes, add the following two inclusion File Rules to Migration Manager:
%USERRECENTFILES%\AutomaticDestinations\f01b4d95cf55d32a.automaticDestinations-ms
%USERRECENTFILES%\AutomaticDestinations\1b4dd67f29cb1962.automaticDestinations-ms
