U-Tools: Unique Tools for Windows System Administrators
U-Move Help

Operation Failed

After you press the Finish button, it is possible that U-Move might encounter an unexpected error. It will automatically roll back all changes. This will restore the destination computer back to its original state.

Finding the Cause of the Error

The error message is typically generated by the Microsoft operating system. The cause is usually obvious – for example, “The disk is full.” Often you can fix the error by checking with Google. To find a solution try searching Google for the text of the error message. A quick search will often give you the solution to the problem.

The Trace Log File

The trace log file is a text file at C:\Program Files\UMove\TraceLogs\UMoveTrace.txt. If the program encountered a fatal error there will also be a dump file, C:\Program Files\UMove\TraceLogs\UMoveTrace.dmp.

Requesting Technical Support

If the error persists and you are unable to resolve it or find a quick solution on Google, you can contact U-Tools Software to request technical support.
