(5 stars) Excellent!

By: Dreamer
I use this tool for about 6 months and still admire it. Simply The Best in combination with NVME SSD! You should promote it more, because 99% of people don't know that USB-USB transfer is possible. It would be even better if could be used directly from Windows-Explorer, as virtual drive. Thank You very much and keep up the good work. Kind regards from Slovenia.

(1 star) Removed file time stamp

By: myemail
I thought 3.0 would be an improvement but the file date is missing hours and minutes. Plus who knows what does 'date' stand for, Mod date or create date or access date...ect

Brian, Customer Support
Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. We apologize for the difficulty you encountered with our product. We hope we can offer some assistance in this situation. If your computers use Windows 7, 8 or 10, you will want to install the PC-Linq software on each computer involved in the data transfer. Once installed, open the PC-Linq application on each computer and connect our cable. Once the Connection Status LED in the lower-right corner of the PC-Linq application turns green, you can begin moving files. If this doesn't help, we would be happy to look into the situation with you. To do so, please contact us through our live chat feature or call us, toll-free, at 1-800-265-1844.
