    Applications selected to be restored are automatically installed, eliminating the need to find previously downloaded applications, old CDs, or serial numbers.

  • Independent Restore

    PCmover transfers the selected programs, files, users, and settings from an image or a hard drive to a new PC without overwriting the settings on your new operating system.

The only way to restore an
old image or hard drive to
a new PC!

PCmover Image & Drive Assistant™ is breakthrough software that complements ANY imaging solution available on the market today. Now, you can restore the image of an old Windows® PC (or old hard drive) to a new PC that has a different Windows operating system. All programs, files and settings are restored to the new PC without overwriting anything on the new PC, including the operating system. Even your programs are restored intact and ready to use!

Without PCmover Image & Drive Assistant, an image from your old PC won’t help you selectively restore to a new Windows 10 PC. Imaging products on the market today are only able to restore an entire image, which includes the operating system. That means using current imaging software to restore an image from a Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 PC to a computer running Windows 10 will overwrite everything, including Windows 10.

PCmover Image & Drive Assistant solves this problem. It is designed to work with all imaging software to allow any image to be restored to a PC with a different operating system without overwriting anything, including the new operating system. This process is called Operating System Independent Restore.

The easy-to-use wizard provides full selectivity and user control over exactly what is restored – you can choose everything or only selected programs, folders or file types. And with an easy ‘Undo’ feature and full money-back guarantee, PCmover Image & Drive Assistant is the smart choice for all your image restoration needs.

When to use Image & Drive Assistant

Scenario #1

Your computer crashes, but the hard drive still runs. Remove the physical hard drive with the manufacturer’s instructions from your old PC, and connect it to your new PC with a high speed transfer cable. On the new PC, download PCmover Image & Drive Assistant and select an image transfer. You’ll be prompted to choose the drive to transfer from, and then PCmover will restore all or some of the programs, files, users and settings from the old hard drive to your new PC even if the new PC is running a different version of Windows. For example, the old PC might have been running XP and the new PC has Windows 10. Your new Windows 10 PC will have your old XP PC’s applications transferred and installed ready-to-use, and your personalized settings, user profiles, and files. But unlike other imaging software programs, PCmover does not overwrite your new Windows 10 PC’s settings or data with any of the old operating system’s data or settings.

Scenario #2

You have a PC running an older version of Windows that is stolen or fatally damaged but you have a saved image (copy) of it. On your new Windows 10 PC, you can use PCmover to restore that image and all of its files, settings, user profiles, and even programs to your new PC. If you use your imaging software to restore that old image, it will overwrite everything on your new PC including Windows 10! That’s where PCmover Image & Drive Assistant comes in. Simply mount the image as a virtual drive and use PCmover Image & Drive Assistant to restore everything you select to your new PC. Only PCmover Image & Drive Assistant has this ‘Operating System Independent Restore’ functionality.
