Laplink PCmover Express is a freee tool to help you migrate a few apps, your settings and data from one PC to another. Which means your brand new Windows 10 PC can look much like your old one, but without the hassle of manually having to reinstall and reconfigure everything.

The program is essentially a simple wizard which walks you through every step of the migration process. It will first scan your old system, helping you to decide what you'd like to transfer; your programs, setting and data can then be saved to a file; and a second copy of PCmover Express which you install on the new PC will complete the process for you.

As this is a free version of PCmover, you won't be surprised to find that there are some significant restrictions. It will only migrate a maximum of three applications, for instance. The program only transfers the settings and files for the currently logged-on Windows user (other accounts are ignored). And it only copies files from your system drive: other drives will not be included.

If you have complex individual applications which would be a pain to reinstall then PCmover Express could, just about, prove useful. And Laplink are at least doing their best to ensure the process runs smoothly, providing American users with a toll-free number, manned 24-7, which they can call for free transfer assistance.

Note that PCmover Express 10 is designed to migrate to either a Windows 8.1 or 10 computer, from an older XP or Vista PC, and is restricted to personal-use only.


PCmover Express provides an easy way to transfer your PC's settings and some applications from one system to another.
