SymMover is an intelligent method of migrating your data between drives, generating a symbolic link between the source and the destination folders.
This benefits scenarios where you’re moving entire folders of software and games to another drive, which normally may cause behavioral issues, but with SymMover this is easily overcome. By creating a link between the locations, Windows will point to the right folder in any situation.
It comes wrapped up inside a simple, yet clean and intuitive interface that is easy to operate. A new migration task can be initiated by the press of a button, which triggers a dialog that allows you to select the data to be transferred.
What’s really great is that the program provides you with a list of installed programs, allowing you to migrate them seamlessly, without the need to manually browse for their path. There’s even a search function that allows you to locate a program or a game in a faster manner.
The output folder can be set from the Settings button; by default, it is a directory that was created by the application automatically, but you can modify this with ease.
You can also select the type of migration to be performed, namely normal (the files are moved and a shortcut link is generated) or keep in source (which means more of a copy operation, seeing as the original files are kept), whichever suits you best.
The migration process occurs at an average transfer rate and note that large quantities of data might take a while to complete.
Overall, SymMover seems like a good asset, worth trying when you need to migrate data without causing compatibility issues for the software and games installed on your system. It lacks scheduling options and could use a more appealing interface and more explicit commands.
