First off we’d like to thank everyone for their comments on our weekly prize post. You guys rock! The winners have been notified, but luckily there are still weeks more of prizes so don’t let up.
We here at Laplink just plain love good software. Finding (or in our case building) software that eliminates unnecessary headaches or confusion when interacting with your PC is our goal in life. For many years we’ve had our focus turned to PC migration. The transferring of files, settings and applications is what we know how to do better than anyone (humble, but true brag). Every once in a while though we want to give it up to those articles/bloggers out there who also give out a helping hand to users looking to avoid the pain and tedium of transferring to a new PC and/or OS.
Usman Javaid over at addictivetips.com wrote an article describing how to easily transfer files and settings using the native Windows Easy Transfer (or WET) utility on Windows. We really enjoyed the article as it helped give people an insight into what they might need to prepare for if they wish to upgrade to Windows 8. If you’re looking to upgrade to Win 8 or Win 7 for that matter, it gives a very detailed look at the WET option for transferring.
But, of course, we started to see some differentiating factors in the WET utility versus our honored PC migration champion PCmover. First thing you’ll notice is the number of manual steps that you must go through when using Windows Easy Transfer, looks like 12 or so. Windows Easy Transfer isn’t as easy as the name implies. PCmover offers a fully automated migration process where you as the user can set the files, settings and applications you want moved and allow the integrated Wizard to do the rest!
Secondly PCmover offers much more utility on the business side of PC upgrades. With the ability to cover the transfer of thousands of PCs at once all while remaining automated, PCmover gives businesses much greater flexibility, power and time/cost saving options than Windows Easy Transfer.
Thirdly, and what in our humble opinion makes PCmover the cream of the crop, is PCmover’s ability to transfer applications across PCs. It is the ONLY software that allows you to transfer files, settings and applications and we think that is pretty darn cool. A lot of other folks tend to agree, which is why PCmover is the number-one selling PC migration software in the world.
But you don’t have to just take our word for it! On May 15th, as part of our Laplink Turns 29 Birthday Giveaway we are handing out PCmover Windows 7 Upgrade Assistant for FREE! Come on by and check it out. Let us know what you think.
