PCmover is mostly great. Some room for improvement.

I purchased a new computer with a new SSD hard drive. I needed to transfer the programs from the old computer to the new computer.

Pros

The best part of this program is the accessibility of the HUMAN support team. You can actually call a phone number and talk to a real human being. Almost unheard of these days.

Cons

The one thing that would've helped me in using PCmover would have been if they had made it more apparent that you could ONLY transfer the programs and data, but NOT Windows itself. Windows needed to be installed on the new machine, before doing the transfer. Had I been aware of that at the beginning, I would've save a LOT of time and aggravation. Also, it took a very long time to transfer the data (29 hours 46 minutes)! But, it was a LOT of data (650gb).

Reasons for switching to PCMover

Couldn't get EaseUs to do the job. And the help support line is not always available. Only nighttime hours.

The biggest and most successful revolution in fast and reliable transfer

Cons

A superior product that fully meets our needs.

Reasons for switching to PCMover

After successfully passing the security test, PCMover became our only choice.

Easy, fast and safe transfer for our customers

Overall the experience with PCmover has been great. If you can read English, it's easy to use. It's fast, if you have the USB 3.0 cable, but also has a good transfer speed through a strong internet connection. And most importantly to us, it's safe. No external or online storage needed.

Pros

At POWER we love the safety that comes with the use of PCmover. We've eliminated the need to store our customers data when transferring (e.g. via harddrive), which was one of our main concerns. We're now also able to easily transfer programs, profiles and settings, which we had to manually setup before.

Cons

A few of our employees, who are not great with English, had some issues using the software. It was slightly difficult for them to understand how to start the software correctly. We also had a few employees report, that they found it difficult to know if the software had transferred everything or not. In most such cases, all data was transferred, but was on a new (transferred) user.

Reasons for choosing PCMover

The cables we tried didn't work very well, which was why I kept looking for something new. PCmover was exactly what we needed.

Avoid PCMover unless you like wasting your time.

I bought PCMover based on the recommendation of Microsoft, as that is the only option they offer to simply migrate information from one Windows 10 computer to another. Not only did it fail to correctly copy the applications, it damaged the .NET framework on the new computer. I wound up have to reset the new computer back to factory and simply re-install the apps and manually copy the data. I requested a refund, and it's been over a week that they have been "examining the log files to see why it failed before giving me a refund." Needless to say, I'd avoid this product.

Pros

It was easy to install, there is nothing else good about PCMover.

Cons

It failed to actually do the task it was supposed to do, which was to copy applications, settings and files from one windows 10 computer to a new windows 10 computer.

PC Mover: Why I use it for every data migration project

I run projects where we dispatch thousands technicians and engineers both in the US and Globally for multisite deployments for Hardware and Software. Whenever we have a project that has a need for data migration I choose PC Mover. It save time, money and effort. It is a value add and a differentiator which directly impacts the TCO of any project.

Pros

Ease of use, Customer Support and Overall implementation.

Cons

Nothing, it is extremely good software that does exactly what I need it to do.

Reasons for choosing PCMover

For the reasons stated above. Ease of Use, Customer Support and overall impact on the TCO of any project involving data migration.

Secure, fast and hassle free!

This software is by far the easiest and most secure way to transfer a complete set of data from one device to another. It is easy to understand the steps in the guide if you are comfortable with reading in english. All in all, it is easy to use, very fast in transfer speed and overall a great hassle free experience.

Pros

The most important part of this product for us is the security of a customers data when transferring. With the GDPR legislation, gone are the days of using an external hard drive or USB thumb drive to transfer a customers data - and we are all the merrier since we have such a great tool now to transfer a customers data with peace of mind.

Cons

The software can be a bit diffilcr to understand if you are not that comfortable with english and maybe not as easy to use as we have seen with some of our employees.

PCmover

Pros

Invaluable program for transferring programs, settings, including registry settings from drives with blown, unrecoverable boot sectors, from migrating from machines, and when upgrading to newer versions of Windows.

Cons

Depending on what is on the source drive, the program can be painfully slow and could take over 24 hours to complete migrations.

Migrating data made easy

Pros

Made easy for everyone, just click what you want to migrate (more advanced features also for migrating specific files / programs) and wait. Really easy to use and a valuable tool in my "toolbox" to get the daily work done with customers. Time saving in a nutshell.

Cons

The only thing missing is the migration of printer drivers that I haven't got to work yet so that when the customer goes home with the new product, the old printer is plug and play.

PCmover that does everything with an ease

Very good, no problems at all. Fast in use.

Pros

The simplicity and user functionality. Fast transfer and four options for transferring.

Cons

I'm missing the function that it could be used on macbooks. Printers dont come along from old computer to new.
