    Software works as advertised

    Software was working but it took a very long time to run the transfer process. The first time I went to the store the sales associate had no idea that you had this software. I came back to return what I was given and found the correct software myself.

    Ease of use, Instructions, Set up

    PCMover was easy to install. It helped to print out the instructions. The transfer took less time as originally posted by the software.

    This product worked like a champ to transfer all my files and photos from my old Lenovo PC to my new HP ENVY PC. It also transferred most of my programs. I used the customize setting to specify which programs I wanted to transfer. PCmover does an analysis and presents a chart showing which programs are transferable, which are likely transferable and which cannot be transferred, then you can choose which ones you want to transfer. I was able to screen out old programs I no longer used or which were associated with my old Lenovo. One of my"likely" programs did not transfer successfully but over 30 were successful. The downside lies with the instructions: the ones on the printed sheet did not totally match the ones on the disc so I opted to follow the disc and that worked. This also comes with a "free" trial eraser program (that can only be used for a limited time after which you have to buy it) to scrub the hard drive on your old computer . PCmover promotes using it as a routine maintenance tool to remove all traces of unwanted files from your computer. I took advantage of the hard drive erase feature to completely remove everything - operating system, partitions and all files - but it took several days to do this using the 3-pass process. The estimated time for the most secure 7-pass process was 35 weeks for about 2 TB of data!

    Great software for what it does

    The software makes a total copy of your old drive to the new drive. That means that all of the junk files such as logs and .tmp files moves over to the new-fresh drive. More, if you have installed software along the way with your OLD computer the leftover files are transferred as well. Take the time and carefully select what you want to move over!!

    I bought a new HP pavilion windows 10 at Best Buy to replace my 7 year old Dell Laptop Windows 7 I didn't download or read the guide book, just jumped right in with download & preparation for transfer I had an issue downloading the software update, I called the 24/7 help line, the support person remote accessed into my computer, updated software was downloaded, and ALL contents of old computer was transferred The transfer cable was an Ethernet Cable between the two, transfer took bout 2 hours transferring bout 150 gb On my old lap top I was running Office 2003 with an Office 2007 compatibility patch, Office transferred just fine Software was worth every penny I paid for it!

    With the upgrade to Windows 10, you have to use a third party to move files and programs to a new computer. This did the job well without a steep learning curve. It did take about a day to transfer around 1 TB of data, which seemed like a long time.

    My new laptop didn't have a jack to receive the cable so I had to transfer files over wifi. It took a long time but it reliably transferred all the files I selected and all the programs work great. It was worth buying and worth the wait.

    Tranferred Easily and quickly

    The product performed as advertiesed, it even made attempts to transfer programs from the original PC to the new PC. It evaluated the software on original PC and calculated the success percentage of a transfer. (Going from XP to WIndows7) It declared which programs it could transfer, and which ones were questionable, and last which ones it absolutely could'nt. What drags the overall score down to three is the inability to use this product on more than one PC. When you have multiple computers in the household, that drops its value from a 4.5 to a mere 3. I would recommend this to someone with a single PC to transfer, not four PC's like in my household.

    The software transferred most everything from old to new computer. One issue that slowed me up was not disabling firewalls on both computers. Looking back, it did instruct me to do this in the instructions, but I'm not used to looking for those settings. Tech support was prompt when I called late on Sunday evening of a long holiday weekend. Microsoft Office (legitimate copy) transferred fine. The computer shop charges $150 to move files between computers, and doesn't move apps. This was a much better deal. I did use the ethernet cable to connect the two computers. I could not get the wifi connection to work.

    I was skeptic of buying this product, but it did very well transferring files and settings between an old HP laptop to a new. This program does seem to be created more towards transfers between two HP's. I only hit a few bumps since I was transferring from Windows 7 to 10.

    It did not work out of the box. The new computer could not find the old computer. I called their customer service and they guided me through the process.. They took over my computer and configured everything so the transfer took place during the night.

    I had been dreading the install of my new computer. All the software, settings, let alone data. How to get it all in the right place. This made it really easy! And in the end, it told me what it was not able to move so I could do something about it manually. Not easy software to find, but great.

    I recently had to move to a new computer due to hardware issues with previous computer. My previous computer was partitioned and Laplink PC mover moves everything to Drive C. The partioned files were put into a folder on drive C naming it Drive(Letter of partition-foler name, for example "Drive_E". Works pretty well as most programs recognize that as the link. However not all programs worked which ment reinstalling or changing settings. In some cases had to uninstall before reinstalling. Another problem was required Serial Numbers even though valid on previous computer did not work. Had to get software providers permission after explaining to update. A number of links had to be updated such as documents, excel, etc. were not found since they had moved from original file location. Still all in all was better than trying to make the move manually. I have many programs and files.

    Not that good

    I wanted to transfer programs from my old laptop to my new desktop. I was led to believe that it would move most of the programs without having to reinstall. Good in theory but did not work for me. Installed the program on both computers and it appeared to work well indicating what it could move and what it could not. Problems soon started when the laptop froze up and everything stopped. Called support and got a tech who offered to troubleshoot by remote access to both computers. I was on the phone for over an hour and was informed that my laptop had malware. I had scanned the computer prior to installing pc mover and it was clean. He offered a program to "fix" the problem to ensure a clean transfer but I was not going to buy another product from this company. Bottom line, I did manage to get a few things transferred but lost most of my photos and the majority of my other info. My laptop went dead and would not reboot so I am going to have to let the geek squad see if they can salvage my info. Lesson learned will let the Geek Squad trans fer the info in the future.

    Not as easy as led to believe

    After three hours of trying to clone my old drive I had to call tech support. They remotely connected to my computer to configure the program and tried to get me to buy other services. They did get my computer configured to clone my old computer to my new computer. I was however unable to clone the drives because my new computer had two hard drives. The C drive was a solid state and smaller than the old C drive from my old computer. The program is not designed to clone to other than the C drive. Even though the D drive in the new computer was 2 terabytes the program would not clone to it. I have not tried this program to back up files, That portion may or may not work.

    I bought this when I was getting a replacement desktop PC because my old one was nearing its end. I followed the instructions but could not get the program to install properly from the included CD on either computer. When I contacted LapLink all I got was run-around and was even told "you must have bought an old version" because there's no CD with the version for download. They wouldn't do anything about a replacement because I'd bought this from a store (Best Buy) and not direct from them. No offer of help, nothing. I should have heeded various negative reviews, but I got it because I really wanted it to work. In the end, it turned out I was able to get my most important programs moved over to the new PC just by contacting their makers. One that I could not get a reply from I was able to buy a new copy for much less than the price of PCmover. I wish there was a way to give this a "No Star" rating!!!!!

    Moving my files and programs from my old computer to my new computer couldn't have been easier. I chose the files and programs that I wanted to move and within a couple of hours they had all been transferred without any problems. I did have to reinstall some programs but most of them transferred completely.
