EzMigration Makes It Easy to Migrate a Boot Drive
Hollywood, FL...Data Protection Solutions by Arco, a long established leader in low-cost drive to drive backup technology, today announced EzMigration hard drive migration software. The newest addition to DPS Arco's growing catalog of drive copy software and hardware products, EzMigration is designed to simplify the process of copying a boot drive to a new or larger drive.
EzMigration works under Windows XP, 2000, 2003 and Vista. It is designed to perform a bit by bit drive copy and is being marketed as a software alternative to the company's existing EzCopy stand alone hard drive copier devices.
"We recognize that not everyone needs (or is willing to pay for) the power and convenience that a stand alone hardware drive copier can offer. Many people who migrate to Vista, for example, find they need to move to a larger drive. EzMigration provides an inexpensive option for PC users such as these who just need to copy an occasional drive," says company CEO Itzik Levy.
EzMigration can be used to copy any drive but it is particularly useful for people faced with the job of having to migrate their boot drive contents. EzMigration transfers an exact image copy of the entire original drive to the new one. This eliminates all the work normally involved in building or rebuilding a new boot drive by installing one application at a time. Once the drive image has been transferred to the new drive, all of the information on the old drive-including the applications, data files, preferences and partitioning-will be on the new drive. In the case of a boot drive migration, the new drive will be bootable and ready to use. This type of move cannot be achieved through a file by file copy.
Since many new drive purchases are based on a need for a larger drive, EzMigration includes a drive partition expansion utility so that new drive owners can take advantage of the full storage capacity of their drives. Whenever a drive image is copied to a new drive, the image creates a partition which is limited to the size of the copied drive. For example, if an 80 GB drive is migrated to a 200 GB drive, the result will be a 200 GB drive with an 80 GB active partition and 120 GB of unusable drive space. The partition expansion utility provides a quick and easy way to expand the 80 GB active partition to the full 200 GB so that users can take full advantage of their new drives
EzMigration sells for $39.99 and is available for immediate download. For additional information, visit http://www.arcoide.com/instant_migration.php.
