Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) February 28, 2014
With end-of-support for Windows® XP coming quickly, many users are purchasing new PCs. Laplink® Software, Inc. announced today the easiest solution to transfer years’ worth of data to a new PC while backing up and protecting this data for years to come. Laplink’s unique Ultimate Backup Bundle offers Laplink DiskImage™ along with PCmover™ Image & Drive Assistant as the perfect complementary products for anyone moving off of a Windows XP computer to a new PC.
“The end of support for Windows XP has caused a lot of worry for PC users,” explained Thomas Koll, CEO of Laplink Software. “They are worried about purchasing a new PC, about losing their favorite programs, and about how to move over all of the files they’ve accumulated over the years. Laplink helps alleviate these worries with this bundle.”
Laplink DiskImage makes a perfect copy (image) of the entire hard drive - all applications, files, and settings as well as the operating system itself. This image can be stored on external media (e.g., external hard drive) or, if space permits, on the hard drive of a new PC. DiskImage uses a hardware independent restore feature to allow restoration of an entire image to any PC, regardless of hardware. While other modern imaging solutions may provide similar functionality, the second part of this bundle is unique to Laplink.
PCmover Image & Drive Assistant can be used in conjunction with the image of an old hard drive to restore to a new PC with a different operating system without overwriting anything. Now it is possible to restore an image from an old XP computer to a new Windows 8 PC without overwriting the new OS. Plus, the restore is fully selective allowing users to choose exactly what is copied to the new PC.
All selected files, personalized settings, and even applications are restored to the new PC. And, PCmover comes with 24/7 Free Transfer Assistance, allowing users who don’t have a high level of technical skill to call a toll-free number at any time of any day for guidance from a certified migration expert at no additional cost.
“There is no other tool like PCmover Image & Drive Assistant on the market today,” continued Koll. “There is no other way to perform a so-called operating system independent restore from an image. And the same software can be also used to migrate from an old hard drive to a new PC. So now, if you have an old hard drive or the image of an old hard drive, it’s easy to move to a new PC with a different operating system. That’s the uniqueness of PCmover Image & Drive Assistant.”
Both DiskImage and PCmover Image & Drive Assistant are compatible with Windows XP and later versions of Windows and come with a 30-day money back guarantee from Laplink Software. The Ultimate Backup Bundle is available for $39.95 at http://www.laplink.com/index.php/specialpages/blog-diida-022614. The physical box version of Laplink DiskImage is widely available from software retailers in the United States for under $40, which includes PCmover Image & Drive Assistant at no additional charge.
