"Simply a waste of money and some time"

January 22, 2013  |  By bubbawat2

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 6.0.620

Pros

Files and settings transferred without corruption

Cons

No application transferred without a problem
only 17 of 158 applications were eligible to transfer
No large application (office 2010) was selected as compatible

Summary

I had used PCmover a couple years ago to move from an XP machine to Windows 7. I was impressed at the quality performance then. I figured my upgrade to a new machine and transfer from Windows 7 to Windows 7 would be a snap for this software. Not so

I prepped as required on both machines (a few hours worth)and was dismayed to see only 17 of 158 applications would transfer. Further, no major applications were selected - I did force select Windows office 2010 because at this point I had nothing to lose. Called 24 hour support and got no answers and even less ability to understand the problem - I had hope maybe they would suggest an upgrade migration as a working solution instead of pc to pc but alas...

12 hours later the transfer completed. Files and settings were transfered very nicely, but no applications worked. I have been reinstalling applications all day (just as I would have with the free easy transfer utility).

So - wasted about 3 extra hours and the money. PCMover did not corrupt settings and files so integrity allowed an uncorrupted ending (so far). That said - the product did little of the primary selling points of its advertising.

"Exceeded expectations"

December 24, 2012  |  By lesser160

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 6.0.620

Pros

Does the job as advertised. Moved everything. Easy to use if you follow instructions. Great technical support by phone.

Cons

There are none.

Summary

This is one incredible piece of software. Anyone who has anything negative to say about this software does not know how to read or follow instructions.

"Great product, great price, excellent customer service!"

August 14, 2012  |  By IT_Chicks_Rule

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 6.0.620

Pros

Easy to install on each PC. Easy to use. Saves time and aggravation as a "magical" alternative to manual PC builds and rebuilds. Pleasantly surprised with the clean transfer between 32 to 64-bit machines. High-quality, helpful, personable and knowledgeable customer service. Super-reasonable cost.

Cons

Really no Cons, but if I have to I'd say: Use your best judgment and instinct of which user programs to select when transferring 32-bit to 64-bit OS machines. If in any doubt, leave it out. Easier to re-install a program you're unsure about, than uninstall/clean-up on new PC.

Summary

Having done numerous manual PC builds and rebuilds over my IT career, I'd often wished for a product like this. So glad I found it and right in time, have 4 XP Pro 32-bit to Windows 7 Pro 64-bit PCs to get transferred ASAP - 1 successful one down,3 to go. PC Mover is making me look like an IT rock star here at work. I'm super busy, don't have time to waste so with the excellent support and guidance from Customer Service Manager Ray, plus the easy-to-follow User Guide my 1st experience with this product has been a blessing! Thank you Laplink for making my wish come true!!

"WHAT THE F***!"

May 21, 2012  |  By IPS777

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 6.0.620

Pros

Dont know yet!

Cons

Purchased from CNET Downloads (Powered by Trial Play) received link to download, but no serial to use the program just an order number.

Cnet, Trial Play, and the Laplink have all given automatic replies to my inqueries stating I will get a reply "withing 48 hours, and then a secong auto from TrialPlay stating a responce could take up to a few days due to higher than normal e-mail volume!

Thanks guys, the whole reason for purchasing a program like this is to save time, I can manually do everything before 48hours is up, not to mention the 2 hours I have spent trying to solve this tonight before having no other option than to write a bad review.

Worked with Laplink Support and they did make things right. Its not reasonable to expect they have 24 hour tech support, but the whole thing was frustrating. The problem I experienced definitely was from Cnet/Trialplay "dealing" the software for Laplink. I never did get to use the software....

"Worth every penny"

February 15, 2012  |  By PROlenick

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 6.0.620

Pros

Does what it says. Good tech support via online text chat. Very prompt refund if you download the wrong version (there are several).
Only program of its kind.

Cons

Danger in bringing over incompatible programs from 32-bit to 64-bit Windows - use care in selecting programs to bring over, as it may be hard to uninstall them.

Summary

Got friend's old XP Pro SP3 hard disk's contents ported to a new 64-bit Win 7 machine - the motherboard of the old machine had died. Turned out that the way to do this was with the cheapest version of the program, Image Assistant, mounting the old drive via a USB connection to an external drive case. The tech support agent gave me many helpful pointers, including a link to a program at softpedia that could zap programs that the Control Panel uninstaller couldn't touch - though with his help in picking things to transport I didn't even have to use it.

"PC Mover is the best."

February 10, 2012  |  By ddolphin1358

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 6.0.620

Pros

At firt i wasn't sure what I was doing, but after talking to Ray everything I did fell into place. My computer is working perfectly
and I couldn't be happier.

Cons

At first it was difficult for me to understand, but after talking to Ray and with him explaining how to do this, it was fairly simple.

Summary

In summary,PC Mover is the way to go, when transfering info from an old computer to a new computer. Its less expensive to do and much easier to deal with.

"Great product!"

February 07, 2012  |  By kconsalvi

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 6.0.620

Pros

Just finished migrating from an old Windows Vista pc to a new Windows 7 pc and I used PCMover PRO to do it. Highly recommend this product - you will save hours of valuable time if your migration involves more than a few software programs and files. PCMover Pro moves all of your software, files, and settings perfectly so you can be up and running on your new PC very easily. It may however take a long time (mine took 10 hrs.) so just set it up, plan something fun to do, and let her rip. Read the manual first and follow the instructions - the process is easy to do. Remember to disable your spyware, anti-virus, firewall settings on all products on both pcs; and I recommend not trying to move any such protection packages as they may not be usable in a 64-bit format. I had one that wouldn't work and it took much longer to clean it out then it would have been to install a new package that was 64-bit. Just re-install any such software with a current, compatible version.

Cons

None - any glitches were not related to PCMover

Summary

If you have more than a couple of software packages and files don't hestitate - get this product and stop putting off that pc conversion. It's really easy.

"Great Product - Great Staff"

January 31, 2012  |  By Sassy-in-San-Jose

 |  Version: PCmover Professional 6.0.620

Pros

Fast and complete data transfer.

Cons

Absolutely none!

Summary

I purchased PCmover along with my new computer. The software loaded easily onto both computers, but I ran into a problem when the data actually started to transfer. I didn't realize that my old PC had a partition on the D drive and from that point on, everything went wrong because I tried to move back in the program. (The next time I buy a new system, I'll check out my old one more carefully to see what's actually on it and where it's located.) I called Laplink and the staff was very patient and helped me get the software back to the correct starting point and instruct me what to do. From that point on, the whole process only took 30-35 minutes! It moved everything so I didn't have to go onto my new PC and reload any of the software programs that had been on the old system. It even transferred all of my internet Favorites, music, and pictures!

I am a VERY happy camper! I would recommend this product to everyone that gets a new computer.
