Transfer All Files To New Computer

Automatically Copy All Files From One Computer To Another (And Programs, too!)

As Seen On

What does Zinstall do?

Zinstall copies all of your files to your new computer. Easy, automatic, without messing around with USB sticks or trying to find where your files are.

And it's not just files: you get your programs, documents, music, pictures, favorites, emails, accounts, passwords, profiles, settings - everything that really makes your computer feel like home.

You can start working on your new computer right away, without spending days on setting everything up manually.

Oh, and nothing is removed from your old computer; it remains unchanged and fully functional.

Is it difficult to use?

You don't have to be a computer guru to do it; if you know how to download a file, you know how to use Zinstall.

The product does the transfer for you, completely automatically (see video above).

You don't need special cables; Zinstall can use your wireless (wifi) for the transfer (or even a USB hard drive).

And if you have any questions, our friendly, skilled techs are standing by to assist and guide you through.

We don't hide behind chat bots and never-ending menus; you get a human response, and human care.

Will Zinstall work for my computer?

Zinstall works with any Windows (including Windows 11), and with any computer.

For example, you can transfer files and data from Windows 10 to Windows 11, from Dell to HP, from Windows 10 to another Windows 10, 7 to 11, you name it.

You can transfer files to a completely different computer, different manufacturer, desktop to laptop, and any other combination.

You can even copy directly from broken computer's drive, using Zinstall Migration Kit Pro.

How is Zinstall different?

We've been helping people with their transfers since 2009, using our unique technology.

Unlike other, "mover"-style products, Zinstall transfers everything - no missed files - and it even transfers programs, so that you can use your files just like on the old computer.

And unlike companies out there, you will never be talking to a bot or sending emails to nowhere. Our Support team is staffed with professional, experienced, human techs - ready to help you out with any questions or concerns.
