PCMover Express replaced Windows Easy Transfer for Windows 10 and later - 1st experience not a good one

Negative Comment by Seth
about PCmover and Windows Easy Transfer Jun 2016

My first experience using PCMover express was a disaster. Took over five minutes to sign into the migrated profile between accounts on the same computer. Then once logged in the Start Menu and cortana search box were unresponsive.

Might be smart to back up original user account and profile using a few different tools before deciding to rely exclusively on this tool and deleting the original user account.
