Easy Migration to Windows 7
Anyone wishing to upgrade to the new Windows 7 operating system will face a difficult and time-consuming task requiring them to copy all data to a safe location, install Windows 7, and then reinstall all their applications and restore their data by hand, with potential for data and applications to be lost.
Laplink has a better solution. It’s fast, simple, and doesn’t require copying any data to and from an external drive.
Using PCmover, Laplink’s award-winning and best-selling migration software, any user can upgrade from Windows XP or Vista directly to Windows 7 with just a few simple steps:
1. Install PCmover on the Windows XP or Vista computer to be upgraded.
2. Run PCmover and select the upgrade option.
3. Install Windows 7, selecting the “do not reformat” option.
4.Install and run PCmover which will automatically restore all applications, files, and settings.
For those users who desire to reformat their hard drive when upgrading, PCmover also supports this option by automatically transferring data to and from external media such as a USB hard drive.
PCmover isn’t limited to in-place upgrades for Windows 7, it also supports users moving from any version of Windows (95 or later) to Windows 7 whether on the same hardware or migrating to a new PC.
Complete migration - Move all your files, settings, and programs from the old to the new PC, without worrying that key registry settings or shared files will get left behind. PCmover is the ONLY migration utility for Windows that moves programs, files, and settings from your old PC to your new PC – or performs an in-place upgrade regardless of operating system.
The USB 2.0 cable supplied includes a chipset that allows for simultaneous, bi-directional flow of information between PCs. This allows for both PCs to communicate and transfer information more quickly.
Transfer from an old OS to new - PC Mover will transfer files, settings and programs from PCs with operating systems dating back from Windows 95 right up to Windows 7
File & Folder Selectivity- You decide which files and folders belong on your new PC – or copy all of them.
Transfer Applications - Transfer all or only selected applications to your new PC.
Easy-to-Use Wizard Interface - Click through a simple wizard to set up the move. In just a few minutes, PCmover will start to transfer your programs, files, and settings in one easy step.
No overwriting - PCmover will not overwrite any pre-installed software on your new PC, or alter your old PC in any way.
Multiple transfer options - Choose from a parallel cable, USB 1.1, USB 2.0, or for the fastest migrations, use a wired/wireless network to perform the migration. You can even use removable media such as a CD-R or DVD-R.
Migrate multiple users in a single migration - Most software requires you to perform two separate migrations for two separate users - not PCmover! Save time by automatically migrating all XP users and their configurations from an old PC to a new PC in a single migration
Undo feature - Reverse a migration at any time with PCmover's easy "undo" feature

I was transferring from an XP laptop to Vista.
I started by doing a thorough clean up of the XP computer. I chucked out all the Apps I never use and ran a cleanup and a virus check on all the rest. I used Quick Clean to get rid of all excess junk, leftovers, double entries etc. I also ran a registry clean up. When I was sure that I had done all that I could, I gave the whole machine an exhaustive defrag with a specialist programme.
Next, I did the same for the Vista Computer. As it was almost straight out of the box, this only took very little time.
The next thing - and according to what I read - the most important thing was to disable all background running applications on both computers, paying particular attention to virus programs and firewalls. Also, I was told, it was vital to disable screensavers and power 'time-outs' etc. This I did. Only then did I load up the software as instructed on both machines, connect the USB 2.0 cable and left the machines to 'chat to each other' for three and a half hours.
I was fully expecting at least one or two problems BUT NO. Three and a half hours later, everything was safely transferred (or rather copied) from one machine to the other. What had taken a week when I traded up a few years back from Windows 98 to XP took only half a Saturday to complete and three hours of that was spent watching the Test Match on TV while the actual transfer happened. What a fantastic product! I have nothing but praise for it.
Bearing these limitations in mind, I will state that the programme did what is said on the tin for us - user accounts, passwords, personal profiles, programmes, document folders and structures, all came across neatly, including desktop wallpapers! We are reactivating licence keys as necessary, this is not too much trouble, and have installed printers, digicams etc on the new machine.
It took about 4 hours in total including the installation process - about 3h30 to transfer about 19GB of data, via the silver-plated LapLink cable supplied in the box.
All in all, this will have save us many hours of manually copying files and reinstalling programmes. Recommended.
The software lacked any real ability to customise what was copied over so if your existing machine is configured perfectly and you want to move all apps over great.
If however you want to take the opportunity to really move forward use standard laplink to move over useful folders such as My Documents, Music, etc and take the time to install apps as new. I'd also spend the time looking at Vista as I found that some of the built in extras do away with the need for extra system tools I'd previously install in XP.
As a slightly more senior member of the computer fraternity I thought the moving of programmes and files would be almost beyond me until I came across PCMover which seemed to be the only product which would actually move programmes as well.
Even then PCMover reviews varied from "Brilliant" to "Don't buy it!" which I found rather disconcerting to say the least. However, I did purchase complete with the USB cable and proceeded to follow the instructions to the letter(I found it useful to print out the instruction manual from the CD).
Everything worked like a charm and about 5 hours after starting I was using everything on my new PC including Microsoft FrontPage which I needed in order to maintain our jazz club website.
I am more than pleased that I eventually ignored the negative reviews and am delighted to write this one!
Apparently, PCMover will take a snapshot of the new computer so that it does not transfer the same material! However, after a snapshot, it still managed to gather up every single programme and duplicating it!
I am not at all happy with this product! It shuddered and stopped twice during migration, which meant the whole process had to be started again. Believe it or not, I started trying to transfer information on Friday morning. It is now Monday, and I have just managed to delete all the migrated files (the undo migration feature did not work) - and I could only do that by restoring my original settings!
I never want to see a removal van again!!!!

This is great value just for the cable alone against the price elsewhere. And the product also upgrades to the latest version (PCMoverPro 8), so a bargain price. Read morePublished on 20 Aug. 2013 by Jimbo Smiles
