FAQs and Support

No catch! PPM is free through December 31st. PPM will automatically activate the license over the internet. If you have any questions, please chat with us.

That is correct. PPM is engineered to migrate applications, data, and settings between users on the same device. In order to migrate to another PC, please consider PCmover Business or Enterprise.

We are working on adding functionality to delete the old user profile in order to provide more disk space.

Utilize our switches to install silently and then automatically launch PPM in minimal UI mode.

Make sure laptops are plugged into a power outlet and that screen savers, hibernation protocols, and power-saving options should be turned OFF (i.e. All power management options in the Control Panel should be set to "Never" so they are completely disabled). The PC needs to remain on and completely "awake" during the transfer and must not go into screensaver or sleep/hibernation mode.

Migrating on the same device can be very fast! This depends on several factors: the size of the user profile(s) you are transferring, the level of fragmentation, the number and size of applications and other files and folders you are transferring, and other factors.

Yes! You can find all necessary options here.
