New Version of PCmover for Business and IT Professionals

Now Available: PCmover Business Version 11!

We pleased to announce the release of our newest version of PCmover Business. PCmover, the top-selling PC migration software, is the only software of its kind recommended by Microsoft, Intel, and major PC manufacturers.

PC Migration Software for Business & IT Professionals

PCmover Business provides small to medium-sized organizations advanced migration options to greatly reduce the time to deploy PCs. This PC migration software dramatically lowers the cost of a PC refresh project. Furthermore, it becomes particularly valuable when considering Microsoft’s Windows 7 End of Support on January 14, 2020. As Laplink CEO Thomas Koll stresses, “…it is even more imperative we make PCmover available to organizations needing to quickly and efficiently move off Windows 7.”

PCmover Business automatically transfers everything desired from an old PC to a new PC, even applications, while allowing full selectivity. Run PCmover directly from the command line, portable storage devices (such as USB drives), or from a network location. “Simply, we reduce the total cost of deploying a new PC by over $300 on average,” shared Koll. “We save hours of IT labor and reduce end-user frustration. That means lower cost and greater productivity. And for service providers, it means better margins and happier clients.”

Updates & Improvements in Version 11

This latest version of PCmover includes many improvements that resulted from our partnership with Intel. They include auto-connecting between PCs, improved application processing, and a streamlined user interface. Also, users will see increased network transfer speeds, and improved reliability. Likewise, transfer speeds are increased with added support of USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt cables.

Labor costs, especially for IT personnel, keep increasing, but PCmover actually reduces those costs,” continued Koll. “That’s why so many Fortune 100 companies have chosen PCmover – same as the global system integrators who serve those companies, and same for the top consulting firms in the world. It’s why thousands of smaller organizations, from manufacturing to healthcare to education to government all are using PCmover – to lower the total cost of PC refresh.”

PCmover: the Recommended Windows 7 EOS Migration Solution

Are you ready for Windows 7 EOS?

The End of Support (EOS) of Microsoft’s Window 7 is quickly approaching. Starting January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer release security updates or bug fixes, discontinuing support altogether. Earlier this month, Laplink CEO Thomas Koll shared his thoughts on the upcoming Windows 7 EOS, and the value of a solution like PCmover. Do you have a plan?

Migration Hesitation

Ending support of the 2nd-most used OS is significant, as it will impact the 485 million PCs still running Windows 7. This is leaving organizations with an immense migration effort on their hands. Some organizations have already started the migration process, but there are still many who find themselves procrastinating their move. This can be due to the lack of a clear solution, a lack of IT manpower, or any number of other questions & pain points.

That’s where PCmover comes in.

Migration Pain Points & FAQs

What happens with the user’s data?

Perhaps the most common concern when migrating is ensuring you have moved everything. Do you know the location of every file needing to be transferred? What if you miss a critical file? Additionally, do you have a clear sense of how much data, business critical or not, needs to be moved per user profile? The simplicity of PCmover is a huge benefit because it will make a complete analysis of the PC and find all necessary files, as well as files in hidden folders.

What’s the scope of my migration project?

On top of the migration itself, migration setup can be a challenge. Every PC is different, with varying sizes, types, and locations of data. PCmover helps with all of this. You can transfer everything just to be safe, or choose certain apps, folders, or file types. You’ll have a clear sense of what you’re transferring, and how much space you’ll need on the other side.

Are my apps compatible with Windows 10?

Do you have a smart enough tool to decide compatibility on the fly? PCmover can select certain apps, or blacklist others to ensure compatibility with Windows 10.

How can I minimize migration downtime?

There’s not only the impact on IT staff to handle the migration effort. Each minute a user is without their PC is downtime eating into the bottom line. Sure, there’s the option to speed through manual migrations to save time. However, incomplete migrations result in user dissatisfaction, additional help desk calls, and even more downtime. Using PCmover ultimately reduces migration time, thus minimizing critical employee downtime.

… we have seen a large savings in time spent by users (worker downtime during migrations) as well as a drop in help desk calls related to the transfer process, allowing for savings in staffing.”
– Global Professional & Financial Services Firm, Project Manager


Is there a simple and effective Windows 7 EOS migration solution?

You’ve hopefully guessed it by now. PCmover offers a simple, efficient, and effective way to both setup migrations, and conduct the migrations themselves, all while saving time and reducing costs and downtime.

Can I stay on Windows 7?

Still, some may feel this is all too much of a hassle. Others may not have the IT resources to support a migration to Windows 10.

“What if I just take the risk and stay on Windows 7?” Security Boulevard provided 32 security reasons to move to Windows 10. Inaction should not be considered a viable option, especially for SMBs & Enterprises organizations.

The ONLY recommended Windows 7 EOS migration solution

It’s clear the best course of action is to migrate. Organizations need to be prepared, and ensure they have a strategy to avoid last-minute scrambling and security risks. For the simplest, most efficient and effective way, go with the only migration solution recommended by both Microsoft and Intel.

Understanding Laplink DiskImage backup software

With Laplink DiskImage you can make a backup or image of entire computers, single drives or files during running operations. By restoring such an image or backup later, a user has their normal and familiar working environment back again in a short space of time. The Hardware Independent Restore feature enables a system restoration onto machines with different hardware setups. This means a system image or a clone cannot only be restored onto Server and Desktop PCs with identical hardware, but also onto hardware where the processor or motherboard has been changed, for instance.

We call this function the Hardware Independent Restore. It is in enormous demand from customers and not nearly as complicated as you may think.

When is it used?

Hardware Independent Restore is generally used or enabled in the following cases:

  • Restoration of an image on a computer with different hardware or cloning/duplication of a computer
  • Enabling Hardware Independent Restore by using the boot media to exchange faulty or defect drivers of an existing system
  • Migration of physical computers onto virtual machines or virtual machines on physical computers´

What does it cost?

Unlike most of our competitors, Laplink does not charge any extra for this comprehensive function. It is included in the very competitive price of the product Laplink DiskImage, from just $39.95 for a full version with no time limits.

How does it work?

Windows operating systems must be compatible with a variety of hardware platforms. This portability is achieved through a special layer within the operating system, which is responsible for the management and control of hardware, architecture and machine-dependent devices, such as the I/O interfaces, Interrupt Controller and multi processor communication mechanisms.

This layer is commonly installed on and aligned to the current hardware on an installed and running Windows. If the hardware is exchanged, it becomes necessary to align the layer accordingly, to ensure smooth and continued functionality of the operating system and the programs installed.

Data security made easy!

Regardless of whether at home or at work: The safety of digital data is often overlooked by many users these days, on the basis that “nothing ever happens to me”. Unfortunately, it can and often does! Many users think a backup or system image is too complex and takes too long – so they don’t bother.

Data security was never this easy!

We have directly addressed this problem and integrated into our software, Laplink DiskImage, that guides a user step by step through the creation of an automatic data backup. This significantly easier to use backup functionality enables even novice users to create a reliable and fast backup of their data immediately. With Laplink DiskImage, you can make a copy of your data, applications and your operating system and restore it when required as if nothing had ever happened.

Further new features:

  • Direct creation of virtual disks: from the program itself, you can now create virtual disks. No need for an external program or extra process. This function further strengthens our compatibility with virtual environments which are becoming ever more popular.
  • Task scheduling / planning now has a new assistant to make organizing your data security even simpler. You can, for instance, have an image or backup created through triggers, such as when you first log-in.
  • Plug-and-Play functions: triggers jobs automatically through the simple attachment of a USB or similar to your machine.

The most reliable way to protect yourself against data loss is if you make regular backups of your data and the operating system and store it on an external storage medium. You effectively create a safe which you can access but no one else. When backing up your PC, Laplink DiskImage saves both personal files as well as drive information and individual settings. This not only protects irreplaceable files, such as family photos, vacation videos and office documents, but you also save yourself in the event of a crash the lengthy set up and reinstall of all the programs and the Windows operating system.
