CA Desktop DNA Migrator Feature Comparison

CA's Desktop DNA technology defined the migration software category. CA was the first software company to introduce a migration product, and has been awarded a patent for its technology.

It's true, we've been creating migration software longer than anybody else, but just how does Desktop DNA Professional stack up against the competition?

Still not convinced?

We think that Desktop DNA Professional is the best migration software for the small office and home user, but don't take our word for it. PC MAGAZINE awarded Desktop DNA Professional its "Editors' Choice" award in its review of leading Migration Utilities.

What about Symantec Ghost?

Some people think that migration is the same as cloning. It's not. Symantec's Ghost is great software, we use it all the time to deploy Windows Operating Systems and applications on the same hardware, but every time we use Ghost, we follow with it up with Desktop DNA.

You shouldn't use Ghost to transfer application and system settings between two different PCs or operating systems- that's the quickest way to the blue screen of death there is.
