Laplink Software, Inc. announced today that its new version of PCmover Image & Drive Assistant, the only software that restores an old image or hard drive to a new PC, has been released.    

"Disk imaging software started out with a simple concept - make an image; restore an image," said Randy Clark, Laplink's COO. "The problem was that you could only restore to the same computer. Technology has since advanced, and now some disk imaging software allows for a so-called 'hardware independent' restoration. In other words, you can take the image of one PC and then restore that image to a completely different PC. But the catch is that you restore everything, including the operating system. Laplink is changing this."

With the latest release, PCmover Image & Drive Assistant transfers all selected programs, files, and settings from an image or hard drive to a new PC without overwriting anything, leaving the Windows operating system on the new PC unchanged. Furthermore, applications selected to be restored are automatically installed, eliminating the need to find previously downloaded applications, CDs, or serial numbers.

PCmover Image & Drive Assistant now also includes Free Transfer Assistance, a groundbreaking new service for all customers setting up a new PC using PCmover. Now, at no additional charge, every PCmover customer can use Laplink’s Free Transfer Assistance, providing optimized VIP-level service throughout the entire PC setup experience. With the addition of the Free Transfer Assistance feature to PCmover, restoring an image or hard drive is no longer a daunting task.

“This release of PCmover Image & Drive Assistant sets a new standard,” declared Thomas Koll, Laplink’s CEO. “Free Transfer Assistance is a major step forward in customer care. It addresses PC setup challenges not handled directly by PCmover but which are critical for users to have a successful experience. Restoring an image or hard drive is easier than ever.”

PCmover Image & Drive Assistant is available at and most software retailers throughout North America, Europe, and Japan and comes with a full money-back guarantee from Laplink.
