Should I back up the data on my new computer before I use PCmover?
It is highly unlikely that PCmover would result in any loss of data on your new computer. However, before you make changes to a computer system using Move Me or any other utility program, you should always make sure that you can return the system to its previous state if a problem should arise.
Many new computers include a CD-ROM disk that allows you to easily restore the factory-installed software on the hard disk (including the Windows operating system and all applications) in a single step. Without such a disk, restoration is a more time consuming process, involving the reinstallation of the operating system and applications from original CDs or diskettes.
If you are upgrading a new computer that does not include such a Restore or Recovery CD, we recommend that you back up the data on the computer's hard drive before proceeding to save time in the event of a problem.
