Desktop DNA 3.5

PC migration software

Version 3.5 of Desktop DNA can quickly and easily replicate practically any of your computer's settings. It can be used effectively to recover and replace a PC's environment as well as transfer (or migrate) system settings, application settings, applications and data files to other machines. Not only that, Desktop DNA can also play the role of a backup tool and can even be used in conjunction with Windows Task Scheduler to perform automated backups.

It supports multiple flavours of Windows, including 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000 and XP and contains a lot of features to make the task of migrating user operating environments to a new computer as fast and easy as possible. This, of course, can also translate to dollars saved by reduced downtime and IT department workload, as Desktop DNA can migrate all settings in one hit.

It features an intuitive user interface and 'wizard'-like welcome screen, yet is a powerful tool that lets administrators create customised templates. Filters can also be applied to a migration, allowing the inclusion or exclusion of files by type, size and date.

The program can create convenient self-extracting files, which embed the Desktop DNA application in them, and can be stored on CDs or network locations. These can also be password protected. Disk spanning is supported for large operations, and migrations can take place over a network.

While Desktop DNA can migrate settings from a huge list of applications, Muscle Migration is a feature that creates scripts for custom or in-house applications that may not be supported straight out of the box.

All up, Desktop DNA 3.5 is a powerful tool, with a slew of features that makes data migration and recovery operations flexible, quick and easy. The cost of the package varies according to the licence package needed.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
