Does Laplink PCmover work?

by tzvij / August 5, 2012 3:43 AM PDT

My computer recently broke and I need to get my data off. I found this software called PCmover by Laplink. It claims it can get my applications and files off of a broken computer, but I'm unsure. Does anyone know anything about this software and if it works?

Sort of works.

For example, Microsoft Office detects the move and fails. Many other titles fail too so that software was from I recall discontinued. Nice idea but they weren't honest about its limitations.
