Laplink Software has released a solution to reduce the time it takes to completely migrate user profiles, data files, applications, settings, and more from an old PC to a new PC. By pairing PCmover Image & Drive Assistant with a SATA or IDE to USB 3.0 Transfer Cable, Laplink is able to leverage its PC migration kit to offer the fastest possible transfer.
“There is no other solution for this type of migration,” explains Laplink’s CEO, Thomas Koll. “It’s perfect for anyone who needs to quickly upgrade a hard drive or set up a new PC, even when the new operating system is different than the old. No other technology comes close in terms of migration customization, speed, and cross-architecture or operating system compatibility.”
To use the solution, users need to set up their new PC normally as it comes from the OEM or use a custom base image. Then, connect the old HDD to the new PC with the transfer cable, install and run PCmover Image & Drive Assistant, and follow the wizard. After a few selections to accept defaults or to customize the migration, reducing the time it takes customers to migrate their PC from hours to minutes, states Laplink.
With PCmover, the old hard drive is left untouched, and nothing is overwritten on the new PC. Applications are installed ready-to-use on the new PC, eliminating the need to find old CDs, downloads, serial numbers, and keys.
The software and cable bundle is available for $59.95 on Laplink’s website. It is also available at a discount to partners and resellers on Laplink’s Partner Portal. PCmover Image & Drive Assistant and the cable are both available separately for $39.95, each with discounts available for multi-license purchases of PCmover.
