Windows 8.1, Microsoft’s latest version of Windows has significantly reduced the usefulness of Easy Transfer. Before the release of Windows 8.1, Microsoft allowed users to transfer files, settings and programs directly from one Windows PC to another across a network or using an Easy Transfer Cable. Now, Easy Transfer will only transfer data files to your new Windows 8.1 PC and only by using external media such as an external hard drive or USB stick – no option to transfer across your network or by using a cable. It’s even worse if the old PC is running Windows XP and you want to transfer it to Windows 8.1. In that scenario, Microsoft will not allow Easy Transfer to be used at all.
With XP end-of-life approaching April 2014, there’s a wave of new PC buyers this holiday season who want to move from their old XP computer to a new PC. Unfortunately, Microsoft has made that more difficult with changes in Easy Transfer. In Response to the Windows Easy Transfer problem that users of Windows 8.1 are facing, Laplink is offering PCmover Home at no cost for a limited time.
Setting up a new PC is simple using PCmover’s step-by-step process. This powerful application transfers all of your selected programs, files, and settings from the logged-on user of the old PC to the logged-on user of the new PC. Move everything directly to your new PC across a network (home or office) or using a high-speed direct connect Laplink cable (USB Easy Transfer Cable or Ethernet cable). PCmover Home is the quick and easy way to transfer from one PC to another without leaving anything behind and works with almost any version of Windows.
PCmover also includes Laplink’s Free Transfer Assistance, available to all PCmover users 24/7 at no additional cost. Free Transfer Assistance addresses PC setup challenges not directly related to PCmover but which are critical for users to have a successful migration experience. Properly connecting cables, troubleshooting network or Internet connectivity, and identifying the customer’s migration needs are just a few examples of how this feature provides a complete solution for the end user.
