A problem that many users will face when they buy a new computer is that they have to find a way to migrate the data from the old computer to the new one. It is not only about the applications that have been installed but even more about the settings and other data like emails, images or documents that accumulate over time.
One way to migrate from an old computer to a new one is to use a software that can do the heavy lifting and Laplink PC Mover is without doubt one of the best programs for that. First of all it's compatible to all Microsoft operating systems starting with Windows 95 including Windows NT, Windows XP and Windows Vista.
The transfer of the data can be initiated over network, removable media, flash drives, usb cables and even parallel cables. One of the easiest ways to migrate the data would be to use a network connection or USB 2.0 cable.
Key Features of Laplink PC Mover:
I can definitely recommend this software to migrate data from an old PC to a new one. I still prefer to install the applications anew on the new computer instead of using a migration software but it could come in handy for users who want to speed up the migration and do not want to download, install and configure all the applications again.
