Quick, what’s the top reason people put off PC upgrades? It’s the hassle of moving all those files, applications, and gigabytes of detritus built up on a PC over the years.
That’s a hassle that Laplink says it can solve with PC Mover. According to the product claims, by hooking up two PCs, you can use the application to move all your documents, as well as applications!
Yeah, if you’re as skeptical as we are, you don’t believe it, either. Something that promises to make machine-to-machine migration that easy must be a joke, right? The results, however, put our doubts to rest.
To run PC Mover, you simply install the client on the two machines involved in the move. PC Mover also supports in-place upgrades using a single hard drive by accessing the files stored during the upgrade in the Windows.old file.
It's been a rough month so far for Web host UK2.net, who last week lost its customers' emails following a storage array failure. The host hoped to have service restored over the weekend, but is now saying it might be another day or so as engineers work to finish up an email migration.
"We are currently performing emergency maintenance on mercury.safeukdns.net due [and] due to this the server is currently offline. Our engineers are working on this and will have the server back online ASAP," the company wrote on its blog.
Apparently the Web host has managed to uncover a password migration issue, which it is currently investigating. In the meantime. UK2.net is advising customers who are unable to access their account because of a password authentication failure to place a support ticket to have their password reset.
