Can anything bad happen when I use PCmover?


During the migration process no changes are made to the old computer and so there is no chance that anything bad will happen to it as a result of the migration.

The only steps in the PCmover upgrade process which could potentially result in the loss of data on your new computer system are unloading the moving van and undoing the unload, which involve copying or deleting files and registry settings on your new computer. Prior to unloading the moving van on your new computer, all you are doing is evaluating the files and settings on your old computer and creating files to be used during these two steps.

Although it is highly unlikely that a problem will occur during the migration, you always have the option of performing an "Undo the Unload" on the new computer if you are unhappy with the result for any reason. When you undo the move, the new computer is returned to its pre-upgrade state.

Note: As a standard precautionary measure, we recommend you back up all your data before performing a migration. If you are running Windows XP, then creating a restore point should suffice. For instructions on creating a restore point in Windows XP click here.
