Upgrading windows 8 keeping programs and settings is not working. It fails at 47% of migrating settings and rolls back.

This is the relevant part of the log (Sources/Panther/setuperr.log):

Before it was complaining about things in the Music directory. I deleted the whole thing, now it moved on to Pictures, so clearly the problem is not the file. I tried resetting the permissions on the Users folder, and it went through most of them (it complained about some things being unchangable, but not the pictures folder.

What could be the soure of the problem?

Edit: Disk space shows 109GB used out of 138GB total, 28.8GB available, this is with Windows 8 already downloaded and using up about 2GB of space.

It looks like file permission problems (Read/Write). You can try to reset the Windows permissions to default. I had some issues that caused Windows to fail while installing updates.

Run command prompt as Admin and change the directory to the drive root by typing the following.

CD "C:\"

Then copy and paste this command

icacls * /T /Q /C /RESET

This worked in my case and updates went smoothly.

@cbabb's answer didn't end up doing the trick. This is what I ended up doing (modified advice from Microsoft's technical support). I moved (cut/paste) the documents, music, photos and videos folders to a C:\backup folder that I made. Interestingly everything still worked (the shortcuts in explorer, etc. - I could have just left them there for the long term). I then did the upgrade and it worked. I then moved them back after the Windows 8 upgrade was done.
