    I would be very surprised if this is true. According to EULA you get a single user licence and you may only have it on one hard disk at a time which is a fairly normal restriction. I see nothing in the EULA to suggest it is a once use only tool.

    There is a trial version which may well be timebombed.

    What evidence is there to support this statement?
    I recently purchased the product and used it to transfer my settings and apps across a reset of my Windows 10 system.
    After the restore I encountered some issues so I decided that since I still had the recovery file available I would do a fresh install of Windows 10 and use PCMover Pro to drop the settings and apps onto the fresh system.
    HOWEVER when I tried to perform the recovery I received a message informing me that my registered serial number had no more licences.
    I am at the moment embroiled in a dispute with Laplink over this matter. So far the only concession I have gained is that I was granted another licence so that I could recover my system.
    Unfortunately I have since experienced various problems with my system and have now restored my system to its condition prior to my adventures with Laplink PCMover Pro.
    So my comment about a pretty good job seems to have be somewhat premature.
    Hopefully PayPal can winkle a refund out of Laplink.
    In the meantime I will think about performing another fresh install and rebuilding my system manually.

    IBM = It's better manually.

    Actually I have used Easeus PCTrans and it worked fairly well.

    I guess instead of getting upset, you should

    HAL (one step in front of IBM)

    i.e Have A Laugh :-).

    I'm not upset, just out of pocket to the tune of NZ$45.
    Mind you, being a Scot, it would fit the stereotype if I were upset.

    If you were stereotypically from Aberdeen, you would be slitting your wrists of course! Was just joking of course - I assume you got the classic HAL reference?
