Have any one have any ideas on why the pictures will not show after running the migrating tool on a 4.62 site to 5R2

The migrating process did run whit out any problem and a get a upload folder in the VPP folder that contains lots off files and folder so everything seems ok there

But you can not se any picture if you look on a page

If a for exampel try to insert a picture in a page, I can se the pictures that bellongs to that pages but a can not preview them. Also the same behavior if you add a new picture  

It seems that the migrating tool have connect all the file names to the pages in the VPP folder but not the actuell information hmmm.

Any information would be great becouse a trying to migrate a big upload folder

    Do you have a section like below in web.config (Migration Tool should have add it)? Below is IIS7 schema, sligtly different in IIS6 

    <location path="Upload">

    <staticFile expirationTime="-1.0:0:0" />



    <add name="webresources" path="WebResource.axd" verb="GET" type="System.Web.Handlers.AssemblyResourceLoader" />

    <add name="wildcard" path="*" verb="*" type="EPiServer.Web.StaticFileHandler, EPiServer" />
