IntelliMirror is a set of management technologies built into Microsoft Windows 2000 that provide desktop change and configuration management. With IntelliMirror, users' data, personal computer settings, and computing environment follow them to other locations. Based on policy definitions, IntelliMirror is able to deploy, recover, restore, or replace users' data, software, and personal settings in a Windows 2000-based environment.

Essentially, IntelliMirror provides users with follow-me functionality for their personal computing environment. Users have constant access to all of their information and software, whether or not they are connected to the network, with the assurance that their data is safely maintained and available.

IntelliMirror is an addition to the Zero Administration initiative for Windows (ZAWs). IntelliMirror allows an administrator to set policy definitions once and be confident that the policy will be applied without further administrative intervention. The core of IntelliMirror is user data management, software installation and maintenance, and user settings management.
