Microsoft Print Migrator
Microsoft Print Migrator is a lightweight and portable software application capable of backing up and restoring the print configuration details. It is very simple to use even by novices, as it comes packed with limited options.
Since installation is not a prerequisite, you can drop the executable file anywhere on the hard disk and click it to run.
It is also possible to save Microsoft Print Migrator to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine with minimum effort.
What's more, the Windows registry does not get new entries, and files are not left behind on the hard disk after program removal.
The interface is made from a common window with a plain and simple layout, where a list of printer configuration details is shown at startup, including printer drivers, ports, processors and monitors.
In order to back up data, all you have to do is specify the saving directory and file name (CAB format). Plus, you can ask Microsoft Print Migrator to record activity to plain text beforehand.
A task is carried out quickly and without errors. To restore the printer configuration data, it is only necessary to point out the backup file. In addition, Microsoft Print Migrator is able to backup data on a remote server.
The application is very light on the system resources, using a minimal amount of CPU and RAM. It has a good reaction speed and finishes a job rapidly. We have not come across any issues in our testing. On the downside, the tool has not received updates for a very long time, and it is not compatible with newer operating systems. Otherwise, Microsoft Print Migrator offers a simple backup and restore service for the print configuration data.
