Hi Nick
This looked good and I thought I'd download it as you never know when it might come in  handy. When I looked though I couldn't find a free version just a "50% off a physical copy". Is there a direct link please?

Tnanks Nick. Unfortunately that link says "Bad Gateway. The proxy server received an invalid response from an upstream server." I'll keep trying.

Yes it looks like a problem at the Laplink site. The error occurs just after you add the free version to your basket. I can only suggest to try again at different points in the day. They are reporting that the servers are under huge demand.

Having said that. It appears that if you add something else to the basket, you seem to be able to proceed. The site says that you should be able to download PC Mover for free on its own, but it's looking like you really have to buy something in order to enjoy the offer.
