When you set up a new Windows 10 PC, one of the toughest jobs is to reinstall everything from scratch. While you can always use a Windows 10 Image, and use it anywhere, but if you already have set up Windows on another PC, you need something that can do all the heavy lifting. In his post, we are reviewing EaseUS Todo PCTrans for Windows.
EaseUS Todo PCTrans Review for Windows
EaseUS Todo PCTrans is a free PC transfer software. It can move data, applications, and account from one computer to another in Windows 10/8.1/8/7. The free version offers the following features:
Transfer applications from one PC to another
If you want to have the same set of application on both the computers, it can copy apps and data including Office, Email Apps to the new OS. The transfer is possible either via network or using an image file. Once transferred you will have to go through some initial setup to verify the authenticity.
Transfer apps between local disks
If you are running out of space on your primary partition, i.e. where Windows is installed, then you can use this app to transfer apps between local disk. You can use an external drive as well, but make sure not to format it.
Transfer or back up data from one PC to another
It only makes sense that software like this also includes an option to transfer data such as pictures, videos, music, and documents from one PC to another. It can be done in two ways. You can either transfer over a network or use an image file to transfer the data.
If you are moving a large chunk of data, I would highly recommend using an image over the network. It is a lot easier, and reliable compared to network transfers(in case the network fails or the router reboots).
How EaseUS Todo PCTrans works?

2] Image transfer method
The method works similarly, except that it creates an image of applications. Once you select Image transfer, you have two options. One lets you create an image. The second enables you to recover from an image. Choose to create an option on the primary PC, then select apps, files, and account.
Next copy the image you created on the primary PC, and copy it to the PC where you want to transfer everything. Using the same software, this time you should choose to Recover via an image file. Once the process is complete, all apps, account, and data will be restored at the exact place as they were on the old computer.

If you are running out of space on the primary drive or need to install an enormous application, this application can help.
