not worth it.

kmn1, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: I upgraded from Windows XP, 32 bit. The little LapLink transferred I could easily have done manually. Many of my programs were 32 bit and won't run natively under Windows 7. However, if LapLink had transferred them properly they would have been run in XP mode. When I called support they answered quickly but were not helpful. She simply reiterated that LapLink would not transfer 32 bit apps. End of story. Don't waste your money.
  • Cons: Performance, will not transfer 32 bit apps.

Does not work as advertised.

  • Summary: I bought this product to facilitate the transfer of my data from a workstation running Windows XP toan ell in one running Windows 8. Much of the data did not transfer I called and bought the expensive help package and they tried several time to transfer the data; I still had to buy and install several of the programs that it would not transfer. I would have been a $150 better off to have bought a Belkin Windows 8 transfer cable and the programs to begin with.

It took some time but I like the results

Walter Hellen, Office Depot

  • Excerpt: Great product. I have purchased PC Mover 3 different times over the last several years, once for an XP to newer XP pc; once for a transfer from an XP to new Win7 Pro machine; and once for a transfer from a Win7 Pro laptop to a newer Win7 Home Premium pc. I really like the improvements in the newer version of PC mover - especially that it informs the user before the actual transfer which programs will likely transfer successfully and which will not.

I won't bother with this again

  • Summary: I used it to migrate from Win 7 32-bit to Win 7 64 bit. There was so much cleanup work after the migration that I should have saved my money. And it only works one time.

Amazing product that can move nearly all of your old machine's contents.

pfzimmer, Ebay
3 May 2014
  • Summary: I needed to upgrade my 12 year old Dell 8200 with XP on it to a new Dell XP7800 Windows 7 machine. My old XP PC had nearly 100 programs on it and I was hoping to move most if not all programs, favorites, e-Mail, music, pictures, and documents folders to the new machine. I was not very optimistic that this could be done with any program which even Microsoft doesn't offer.

PC Mover 10 pack. What a joke!

SUE C., Newegg
15 April 2014
  • Summary: No, I would NOT recommend this product. No, I would NOT buy it again.
  • Pros: Discounted price in a 10 pack bundle
  • Cons: Software is designed for home use. When moving domain users to new systems, it missed the permissions and settings despite being hooked to the domain prior to running the software. The software gives you the option to create a new domain user when moving the files and I did so but it dropped so many settings. So I call their advertised 24/7 support line just for LapLink PC Mover Pro.... and they inform me that line is for home users only. They give me another number t...

It was a complete waste of time and money

zelielarryz, Ebay
10 April 2014
  • Summary: 1. Did not do what it said it would. 2. When I tried to re-install and try again, it wouldn't allow me to. I gave it one star only because the review required at least one star to post.

PC Mover 8 Pro

Dale M., Newegg
24 March 2014
  • Pros: Worked as expected for me. Transferred several programs from Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium to Windows 8 64-bit using the supplied Ethernet cable. Copied Office 2010 but had to reset my Outlook 2010 accounts. Several other applications transferred over with no problems. I separately downloaded updated printer drivers and kept those on a flash drive just in case but really didn't need them.
  • Cons: Fairly slow but that was expected. Just how long it takes depends on the number of programs you're transferring and number of data files. From past experience with other versions of PC Mover I moved all my data files first to a USB connected hard drive so there wouldn't be as much to transfer.

Can't connect to laplink.com; can't get phone help.

Hoyt P., Newegg
21 March 2014
  • Pros: Heard good things about it.
  • Cons: I got this to transfer files to a new laptop (both Win 7). For three days I was unable to to connect to laplink.com, with three computers and three browsers. That was necessary to enter the serial number and use the program. I tried the phone help in India several times but this was beyond their ability to fix. I tried Laplink US phone help a couple of times. After waiting a while I was asked to leave a phone number. No-one has called back in three days. My ISP Wildbl...
