Everyone’s PC will quit working one day. If this happens unexpectedly, a user is faced with a challenge: how to get everything from the non-working, old PC to a new one?
The traditional method is to connect the old hard drive to a new PC and engage in a painstaking data transfer process, literally taking days and probably resulting in lost data. User profiles, customization, and other settings almost certainly will be lost. And, applications will need to be reinstalled which necessitates finding old CDs, serial numbers and keys, or spending more money.
Laplink announces that is holds the solution to this problem by making it easy to not only to rescue all the data automatically, but also to transfer user profiles, settings, and even applications to a new PC from an old hard drive with PCmover Image & Drive Assistant.
“Computer crashes come at the most inopportune moments and are always a hassle,” stated Thomas Koll, CEO of Laplink. “Most PC users attempt to rescue their data manually, or take it to a local computer repair company to do it manually. Both of these options require long wait times, tedious work, and will result in missed data. PCmover Image & Drive Assistant simplifies the process by doing a complete migration using nothing more than your old hard drive.”
PC users with some technical skill are all too familiar with the task of manually transferring files from an old hard drive to a new PC. Whether the restoration is for personal use, a friend or family member, or a computer repair business, manually transferring data files is a headache. It requires the user to actively seek out all files from the old hard drive and drag them into the new hard drive, leaving ample opportunity for important items to be missed. Custom settings are almost certainly left behind along with Internet favorites, custom dictionaries, address books, and more. The “personality” of the old PC is gone forever. After the data is transferred, the hassle of reinstalling applications begins, meaning old CDs, keys, and serial numbers must be found (or re-purchased).
PCmover Image & Drive Assistant finds all files, settings, and applications and performs a complete restoration quickly and easily. Simply connect the old hard drive to the new PC, run Image & Drive Assistant, select what to transfer, and walk away—PCmover Image & Drive Assistant handles the rest, including re-installing applications.
PCmover Image & Drive Assistant even works when the new PC has a different operating system than the old PC (although some applications may not be compatible with the new operating system).
“PCmover Image & Drive Assistant is a must-have tool for computer repair businesses and those who happen to be the go-to tech people among friends and family,” explained Koll. “There is no other software that makes data restoration to a new PC this simple, thorough, and efficient.”
PCmover Image & Drive Assistant also comes with a simple, step-by-step wizard and 24/7 free assistance from certified experts, allowing even a non-technical user to easily restore all their data to a new PC after connecting their old hard drive.
