Steps to use EaseUS Todo PCTrans utility
Once done, you need to connect both the laptops on the same network, wired or wireless. One just simply needs to make sure that both the PC’s are running on windows XP or later. And the new system should have the equal amount of memory space to gather all the data. Make sure that the setup is up and running on both the systems and firewalls are disabled and hibernation or sleep settings turned off. You don’t want to disrupt the data transfer because you might have to start it again from the scratch. Though it rarely happens as the transfer automatically stops at any kind of hindrance and resumes when you log into the wizard again.
Once the initial setup is done, you just simply need to put in what is the source and what is the destination. After that, you have to select what all files or data you want to transfer and start the transfer. There is also an option in EaseUS Todo PCTrans to remap your drives in case you want the data to be split into two. Also, make note that this version will only transfer data. If you want to transfer your apps and settings, you can always upgrade it to the upper version.
During data transfer, a user can also go through the analysis as to how much data has been transferred, ETA and memory available. Once the data is transferred, the system will ask for a reboot.
The entire operation and process are pretty simple and speedy since there will be no weird options to configure which you might get while downloading any other software. The only issues that we faced were high RAM usage and non-availability of data which can show us what specific transfer took a longer time. Also, we would really like to see some customization features where we can modify the location of files being transferred. But overall, the wizard does a pretty great work in making the transfer job easier.
