Are you dreading the task of setting up your new PC? Research indicates that a majority of people will avoid buying a new PC because of the laborious task of setting it up. With each new PC, you have to find serial numbers and licenses for your old software applications, manually reinstall each one, burn CDs of all your documents, and rework each personalized setting.
PCmover Ultimate is the ONLY software that automatically moves or restores all selected files, folders, settings, user profiles, and even programs from an old PC to a new one, or old operating system to a new one. And because most transferred applications are installed ready-to-use on the new PC, there’s usually no need find old CDs, previously downloaded programs, serial numbers, or license codes.*
PCmover Ultimate is the easiest way to restore or move to a new PC without leaving anything behind, even when there are different versions of Windows on the old and new PC. Nothing is changed on the old PC, and nothing is overwritten on the new PC.
*Applications may require re-entry of a license code or re-activating on the new PC. Certain system settings and applications may not be transferred due to their incompatibility with the operating system on the new PC.

Pros: Easy to follow directions.
Cons: Time comparison....is equal at best. If you know how to load a program, AND HAVE THE PROGRAM FILES IN HAND, then the time saved is really a wash. Microsoft Office is not transferable due to licensing issues. That may not be an issue for you. Products like Adobe suite do not transfer the license, program yes, license no, so you still need to re- license those.
Other Thoughts: AT the end of the day, it does what it says it will do as far as settings, files, folders, etc. But you can do those yourself on a decent thumb drive following articles on the Internet. Assess your skill levels and then decide if you want a clean, new drive with all you programs as you want them and no "hidden extras" or if you absolutely do not want to chance losing anything from your old one, and don't feel comfortable doing it manually, then spend the money, or pay a fifth grader to do it for you....... :)
