Laplink® Software's latest release promises to be the easiest way to set up a new Windows 8 PC

Basingstoke, UK, 31st October, 2012, Laplink Software, Inc. today announced that its new version of PCmover®, designed to make it as easy as possible to set up a new Windows® 8 PC, has been released. 

For several years, PCmover has been the number one selling application for PC-to-PC migration and the only software that automatically moves files, settings, and even programs from an old PC to a new one. With this latest release, PCmover now includes Free Transfer Assistance which provides VIP-level service throughout the entire PC setup experience at no additional charge.

"Consumers need a hassle-free option for setting up their new PCs. PCmover supports all transfer scenarios:  upgrading an existing PC to Windows 8, restoring from a hard drive or image, or moving from an old PC to a new one," stated Laplink's CEO, Thomas Koll. 

According to Laplink's research on PC buyer habits, one in every five is so concerned about the new PC setup process that they will actually put off buying a new PC.  This concern has little to do with the hardware or operating system, but rather the anxiety of how to transfer everything - including programs - from the old PC to the new one. 

"PCmover with Free Transfer Assistance changes everything," continued Koll. "It combines powerful software and professional guidance for the perfect solution. With Free Transfer Assistance available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, moving from an old PC to a new one has never been easier."

For consumers, PCmover saves an entire weekend of PC setup and configuration tasks, reducing the PC setup process to just a few mouse clicks. All e-mail, address books, pictures, music, videos, and even programs like iTunes and Microsoft Office are automatically copied over from the old PC and installed, ready-to-use, on the new PC. 

For businesses, PCmover Enterprise promises IT departments the ability to manage migrations even for unmanaged PCs, with studies demonstrating savings of more than $300 for each PC upgraded or deployed. Migrations using PCmover for remote offices, subsidiaries, and non-standard PC rollouts can result in cost savings in excess of $1,000 per PC replaced or upgraded. 

While being fully compatible with Windows 8, PCmover continues to support transfers to or from Windows 7, Vista, and XP.

PCmover Ultimate is now available through Amazon. Included in this version is SafeEraseTM and a Laplink® High-Speed Transfer Cable 

SafeErase(TM) is the fastest and most secure way to permanently delete sensitive information.  It securely deletes Internet browser data, files, partitions and entire hard drives, overwrites with zeros for the fastest deletion times, employs six methods for secure elimination of your confidential data and allows you to choose from pre-defined and individual deletion profiles and receive detailed reports on the deletion process.

PCmover Ultimate is available from Amazon at £39.99 MSRP inc.
