PCmover will determine which programs, files, and settings need to be moved, and when the transfer is complete, your new computer will have the personality and functionality of your old PC plus all of its own pre-installed software.  Works with almost any Windows operating system, from Windows 95 to Vista.

NEW! Now with PCmover's selectivity features, you can choose which applications, folders and files to take with you when you migrate to your new PC.

PCmover can migrate your PC across a network, Laplink USB cable, Laplink parallel cable, Windows Easy Transfer Cable, or any type of removable media that can be read by both PCs.
