We’re 37! Change can be hard. And in the case of COVID-19, change can be scary. Having gone from living our normal, everyday lives just a few months ago to now remaining indoors without seeing our loved ones–the change came swift and strong. Laplink turns 37 this week, but it doesn’t feel like a time for normal celebration. So instead, we’ll use this occasion to … Continue reading Laplink Celebrates 37 Years with Donations To Maker Mask
Now Available: PCmover Windows Store Edition Sometimes we all wish life came with an “easy” button. Just press and boom – the house is cleaned, you arrive in a far-off exotic location with no jet lag, and all your tech is upgraded! But with apologies to Staples, we’ve yet to make a real-life “easy button.” Life’s just not that simple.

Deploying a new PC for a remote or home office user is always a challenge, particularly in IT environments that aren’t heavily managed. The question becomes, “what is the easiest way to configure the new PC to look and act just like the old PC?” Manually copying information and installing applications nearly always results in follow-up Service Desk; the user doesn’t have all their applications, or can’t find where certain data ended up. With the recent dramatic increase in remote work (likely including some, or all, of your IT staff), scaling this type of manual migration effort is nearly impossible. Enter, the need for a remote user migration solution.
Today, we have a guest post from our very own Tom Coyle, Senior Enterprise Solution Architect, & Tim Worcester, Director of Customer Experience!
PCmover, the only migration solution recommended by Microsoft and Intel, makes this task easy. With a PCmover migration, the new PC will work and feel just like the old PC, including all user data, profile, and application settings – and even the applications themselves. PCmover, by default, running as a completely “vanilla” configuration, will automatically locate and transfer the applications and all user data to a new environment. With some simple planning and minimal configuration, your users can even drive their own migrations. This dramatically reduces the need to engage IT resources.
This guide gives a brief overview of how PCmover can help you perform a flawless remote user migration quickly and easily. PCmover is extremely flexible and can accommodate nearly any real-world use case. Here, we offer three common scenarios as examples. For help with your specific use case, contact Laplink for a one-on-one discussion, demonstration, or a trial license.
