Absolutely delighted with the tool and recommend it. Don't waste your time on the free one. Do yourself a favour and buy this tool:)
Given that this was all at 2 am Sunday morning in NY, which was probably 8 am where the author is, that counts as exceptional service well worth the price.
You want to migrate? This extension is the way to go (!)
It worked very well, but i came across a few problems, where it appeared not to work properly. My fault, not the extension.
I decided to contact their support and within a few emails, they went into my site and sorted it all out for me.
Excellent customer support makes the upgrade from 1.5 to 2.5 a smooth task, making this extension well worth the cost.
