    Bravura Software announces Version 2 of Easy Computer Sync, which allows users to easily transfer data to a new computer

    Using the USB Easy Transfer Cable, it allows users to quickly transfer their data from an old computer to a new Windows 8.1 computer or tablet

    REDMOND, Washington. –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Bravura Software today announced the version 2 release of Easy Computer Sync, a software program that allows users to quickly and easily transfer or synchronize data between computers using a USB Easy Transfer Cable.

    The new release adds full migration support, which allows users to transfer all of their data to a new computer.  It also supports synchronizing data in both directions between computers, and manually dragging and dropping files between computers.  The version 2 release also includes a new remote control feature for the connected computer, which is especially helpful when only one monitor is available.

    “With Windows XP support officially ending, now is a great time to move to a new Windows 7 or 8.1 computer”, said Bravura Software CEO Matthew Block.  “Easy Computer Sync is the perfect solution for users who want to quickly move all of their data to a new computer.  Since the transfer occurs locally, several gigabytes can be moved in a matter of minutes, rather than the hours or days a transfer over the internet could require”.

    Also, bypassing the cloud entirely eliminates all privacy and security concerns, since the data never reaches the internet.  Easy Computer Sync is popular with the legal, accounting, and medical professions, since it never sends sensitive client information over public networks, but rather through the USB Easy Transfer Cable.

    Since Microsoft has effectively removed Windows Easy Transfer from Windows 8.1, Easy Computer Sync is now the only way to use an Easy Transfer Cable to transfer data to a Windows 8.1 computer.  It also supports all migration scenarios, including transferring data from Windows 8 to Windows 7, or any combination of Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8 computers or tablets.

    Easy Computer Sync is available for purchase directly from Bravura Software at http://www.bravurasoftware.com/easy-computer-sync/. It is sold either with an Easy Transfer Cable ($24.95, with $4.95 shipping), or by itself ($19.95 as a digital download) for users who already own an Easy Transfer Cable.  These transfer cables are also sold at all major electronics retailers.

    Anouncing Easy Computer Sync

    Bravura Software announces Easy Computer Sync, a data synchronization product for Netbooks.

    Using the USB 2.0 Easy Transfer Cable, it provides the fastest possible transfer speeds for most Netbooks and Laptops.

    REDMOND, Wash. –(BUSINESS WIRE)– Bravura Software today announced the release of Easy Computer Sync, a software program that allows users to quickly and easily synchronize data between two computers using a USB 2.0 Easy Transfer Cable. Designed specifically with the Netbook user in mind, it provides the highest possible transfer speeds for most Netbooks and Laptops, with transfer rates of almost nine times the speed of most wireless connections.

    “Easy Computer Sync takes the guesswork out of synchronizing data”, said Bravura Software CEO Matthew Block. “With Easy Computer Sync, you don’t have to deal with network settings, firewalls or passwords. Just plug in the Easy Transfer Cable, and go. You can quickly synchronize your data folders (such as ‘My Documents’ or ‘My Music’) with an easy to use wizard interface. Not only is it easy to use, but it’s also the fastest way to get data on or off of a Netbook”.

    Bravura Software predicts that Easy Computer Sync will be a hit with Netbook users, who make up the fastest growing segment of the PC market. Because of its high transfer speeds and user friendly interface, Easy Computer Sync gives these users a solution to their common problem: how to keep data synchronized with their Netbooks. Until now, Netbook users had no quick and simple way to transfer many gigabytes of movies, music, or other data.

    Essential as a back to school accessory, Easy Computer Sync enables students to quickly synchronize important documents and schoolwork between their Desktop, Laptop, Netbook, or a friend’s computer. Because Easy Computer Sync doesn’t require any network or Internet access, it works well for people on the go.

    Easy Computer Sync is available for purchase directly from Bravura Software at http://www.easycomputersync.com/. It is sold either with an Easy Transfer Cable ($39.95, with free shipping), or by itself ($19.95 as a digital download) for users who already own an Easy Transfer Cable. These transfer cables are also sold at all major electronics stores.
