"PCmover makes computer upgrade a piece of cake"

February 07, 2015  |  By drslocum

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 8.20.636

Pros

Clean, easy to understand user interface

Simple, easy to follow instructions

Comes up with an exhaustive list of files, software and settings, from which you can pick and choose what you want to transfer.

When you're done with the transfer, software that was transferred runs perfectly. No need to find the product registration key and reenter it. This by itself makes PCmover well worth the cost.

Little things like user account profile picture and desktop wallpaper also get transferred to the new computer. When you start the new computer up, it looks nearly identical to your old computer.

The transfer process works between different operating system versions. I used it to transfer files, software and settings from a Windows 7 laptop to a Windows 8.1 laptop.

Cons

One (very) small con is that there are a few things that PCmover says it can't transfer. But for me these were minor things that I was able to take care of myself in only an hour or two of time. I even hesitate to call this a "con" since it was so minor.

Summary

I have had the "pleasure" of upgrading and/or reinstalling operating systems and software on several computers over the years. The process was always very lengthy and prone to mistakes or other issues. I tried PCmover for the first time to transfer my daughter's files, software, and settings from her old and dying Windows 7 laptop to her new Windows 8.1 laptop. I initiated the process on a Saturday night, and it had completed successfully by early the next morning. Normally I would have spent several days getting everything reinstalled and in good working order, and our daughter would have spent some time in setting up her personal preferences, such as account settings, desktop wallpaper, etc. This time, though, this was all taken care of for us by PCmover. Of course, the real test was when our daughter started using the new machine. It has been one month now, and she has had absolutely no issues. She hasn't had to go back and look up anything on the old laptop even once. I used Laplink's SafeErase software today to wipe her old laptop clean. Overall I am very pleased with this first experience using PCmover. I will definitely plan on using it again for future computer upgrades.

"Run Away from this company"

December 29, 2014  |  By blamb060457

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 8.20.636

Pros

none that I can find

Cons

Was told by sales/customer support that Office would come over in the process. I also mentioned that I did not have the authentication key as it was installed buy a repair facility after a hard dive crash. The assured me that there would be no issue. But of course it now requires me input the key which I don't have making this software a totally useless purchase as I now have to buy Office. Don't waste you money!
