Nearly 40 years of PC migration expertise

In 1983, we offered a simple, efficient method of transferring data from one computer to another using the signature Laplink cable. The software became so popular that our brand was soon so closely associated with the file transfer process. “Laplink” soon became synonymous with the cable used to connect computers. And later, it was even associated with the file transfer itself, as noted in Newton’s Telecom Dictionary:

quote Lap-link n.v.
The word is originally the name of a DOS program that transfers files between laptop and desktop computers. It was a nifty program, the brainchild of Mark Eppley, and he formed a company to sell it called Traveling Software in Bothell, WA. Eventually the program became so successful that the word LapLink became a common verb to connote the transferring of files between computers as in, “I’ll go LapLink this file over to Mary’s machine.

In the early days of the PC, migrating from an old PC to a new one meant simply transferring all files. In fact, file transfer and PC migration processes used the same software. But over the years, the processes have changed significantly, and Laplink has changed with them.

Laplink’s commitment to file transfer and migration technology led to the development of PCmover®, the company’s flagship product. PCmover is a sophisticated PC migration solution and is the best-selling migration software in the world, commanding 95% of the migration software market in the U.S. alone.

Organizations large and small trust their PC migrations to PCmover. And, it’s the currently the only migration solution recommended by Microsoft®, Intel®, and all major OEMs. In 2014, Microsoft selected Laplink as the official recommended migration solution in conjunction with Windows XP end of support. This led to the creation of the data transfer tool PCmover Express.

The PCmover® product family

The PCmover product family provides solutions for every user and every PC transfer and migration scenario — from the simplest file transfer to complex migrations at scale.

The PCmover family of products uses proprietary technologies, such as PCmover Image & Drive Assistant, which was developed to complement imaging technology. Proprietary technology allows users to restore images across different operating systems without overwriting data, apps, or the operating system on the destination PC. In addition, the technology allows migrations directly from an HDD to a new PC.
