Laplink Reveals Windows 8.1 Compatible Easy Transfer Cable

Today Laplink® Software released our newest product, the Laplink Easy Transfer Cable for Windows®. It is the only transfer cable that provides PC users a solution for migrating files, settings, and user profiles from an old PC to a Windows 8.1 PC. easy transfer cable

Laplink’s Easy Transfer Cable allows you to perform a PC migration with complete data selectivity. With Laplink’s cable connected to both PCs, you can automatically transfer the data, folders, and user profiles that you choose from an old PC to a new one. After the transfer, you will also see that nothing is changed on the old PC, and the new PC will have the personality and functionality of the old one.

The Laplink Easy Transfer Cable supports transfers from Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 8.1. Most importantly, it is the only transfer cable compatible with Windows 8.1.

With the release of Windows 8.1, Microsoft’s Windows Easy Transfer program no longer supports a direct cable transfer of data and settings to a new PC. For those who are relying on Windows Easy Transfer, you must copy your old computer’s data to an external drive, connect that drive to their new PC and then copy that data to your new PC. This method is both time-consuming and inefficient for what should be a simple transfer.

The Laplink Easy Transfer Cable for Windows is the fastest and easiest way to move files, settings, and user profiles to a new PC, and the only Windows 8.1 compatible transfer cable. It will be available soon at all major retailers, and is available for purchase today on
