What's new in this version:
Version 10 includes support for Windows 10 migrations
Worked one time with help of customer service, even transferred MS Office, sort of. Second "success" (Attempt #48) transferred everything BUT MS Office. Free customer service at 11 pm remoted in, turned off Firewalls and antivirus and got it going! Next morning, 95% success! Restarted after inadvertent suspend seamlessly.
See summary below.
Poor interface. Lots of color and flashy lettering, but the crucial messages are in small, black, plain font. Second effort (after Disk Restore) wouldn't work. Support said need to call 9-5 Eastern time to reset serial number. So much for 24 hour support. Numerous attempts after. Clue: When one counter is counting away, but the other is just sitting, start over, you're wasting time. Third call to support sevarl days later was obviously just a sales scam. Started off by warning me that free support was limited in scope. A few minutes later, tech woefully starts to tell me I need the $100+ dollar tech subscription, forgetting that I could see all he was doing on my two screens.... He hadn't bothered clicking "Next" to start the transfer. Clearly he was dead set on selling a subscription.
After telling his supervisor (who wouldn't listen to my complaint) they both should be jailed, hung up and fixed the minor problem myself (If you re-download on one machine, re-download both.... even tiny differences in build numbers are deadly.
Failed about 25 times after that first success. Then finally got it to work, although no transfer of MS Office second time.
So maybe just take the free version and reinstall your applications. You get what you pay for, and this is definitely still shareware.
Copied every program and file from my old laptop to my new one. The only one that didn't copy was my Microsoft Office program, but that may be a Microsoft thing. Even my desktop pic and icons were all there! Definitely MUCH easier than copying manually and reinstalling everything!
Quite slow when using the wireless internet option (as most probably would). I set mine to start when I went to bed and it still wasn't done 6 hrs later. Took about 8 hrs. I suggest getting the cable (either from laplink or a comparable one) as would prob be much quicker.
For the price, it's worth the hours of your time it would take to transfer and reinstall all you have on your old computer.
