BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Laplink® Software, Inc., the global leader in PC migration and creator of the only software of its kind recommended by Microsoft®, Intel® and all major PC manufacturers, today announced PCmover® Windows® Store Edition—the first PC-to-PC automatic data transfer tool that is compatible with Windows 10 in S Mode.
Windows 10 in S Mode is a lightweight, safer option for Windows 10 that restricts the type of applications that can be installed to those available from the Windows Store, as well as the access rights of those applications. For PC users who only need software available in the Microsoft Store, Windows 10 S Mode is the safest and easiest way to run Windows.
PCmover automatically moves all selected programs, files, settings and user profiles from an old PC to a new one. Consumers who purchase a new PC running Windows 10 in S Mode—and desire to keep the operating system in S mode—can leverage PCmover to quickly and easily transfer data only from their old PC to the new PC.
“Businesses and families have evolved significantly in the last couple of months to an environment where technology is essential to the way we connect, work, educate and live. Many PC users find it is the right time to invest in new devices, and Windows 10 in S Mode makes it easy for that new PC to perform most common functions safely and efficiently,” said Thomas Koll, CEO at Laplink. “Laplink remains committed to helping consumers and IT administrators transition to new PCs quickly and easily. As more users are now staying in S mode, we created a version of PCmover to support their PC transfer needs. They can worry less about their data and get back to work, school and play.”
PCmover is available from Laplink.com, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Amazon®, Best Buy®, Fry’s®, Micro Center®, Office Depot®, Staples®, QVC, HSN and other major software retailers and PC manufacturers in North America, Europe and Japan.
“Since many new PCs start up and remain in S Mode, which Microsoft encourages, it is important that the software we offer supports S Mode,” said Chris Stone, a partner at USI Sales who represents Laplink with several major retailers. “With this new compatibility, Laplink has shown once again why they are the market leader for data migration and PC setup. That’s why we’re proud to partner with Laplink and offer PCmover to buyers of new PCs.”
