Move Me – Transfer Installed Applications, Settings, Files from One PC to Another


spearit software move me graphicYou’ve probably seen PC utilities that help you transfer application settings and files to a new computer, but I’ve only seen a couple that can actually copy installed applications from one PC to another. A new program called Move Me ($39.95) by Spearit Software claims to do just that, as well as, tweak Registry settings on the new PC – while leaving all of the new computer’s pre-installed software intact – for that “familiar feel and functionality of your old, loyal system.”

Features:

  • Simple wizard interface.

    Migrate your programs, settings, and files with just a few mouse clicks.

  • Supports multiple transfer methods.

    Transfer your files over a network, over your computers’ USB ports or parallel ports, or using removable media.

  • Custom “rule” creation.

    Power users and network administrators who desire more control over the migration can create custom rules with the Move Me Control Center

  • Undo feature.

    Easily reverse any migration.

  • Just $39.95 for a single Move Me Personal Edition migration license.

    Quickly and easily move all of your programs, files, and settings to your new computer for only $39.95 (or even less, with our volume discounts).

  • Multi-license Integrator and Enterprise packs available.

    Created for computer solution professionals and the corporate environment, respectively, Integrator and Enterprise packs are available in quantities of 20, 100, and 500 licenses and offer significant savings over the cost of single migration licenses.

  • Works with Windows 95 or later.

    Move Me requires Win 95 or later on the old computer and the same or a newer version of Windows on the new computer.

  • Can be downloaded and purchased from the Spearit web site.

    A connection to the Internet is required during purchase and serial number validation on the old computer, new computer, or another PC.

    MoveMe is awesome! It’s similar to Aloha Bob in features at a much better price. I’ve used it to successfully transfer tons of data between two computers during an upgrade, which saves a massive amount of time over hassling with all the typical reinstalls and settings changes. MoveMe is the single best app I’ve ever seen for transferring files and settings from an old computer to a new computer during an upgrade process.

    I can see that this article is a bit outdated.

    I have tried this program called Laplink PCmover and it does the job just fine. As far as I am concerned, it is only software that moves INSTALLED programs. (Unlike other programs, it actually moves the program itself, not just the setting and registry. I think you have to install the same program on the new computer before you can even have the settings transferred over while using other software.)

    It costs around $50 and I think it’s totally worth it. ($50 includes a cable I think) Not only does it transfer all my files and settings in a simple wizard, but it also saves me the time of reinstalling all the programs and tracking down serial numbers.

    I was very happy to see it work on my computer.

    For the convenience it provides, it’s well worth the money.
