Berlin, Germany (PRWEB) June 26, 2008
O&O DiskImage 3 Professional Edition is now available in stores. A new time-scheduling feature will allow you to perform automatic data imaging on a regular basis. The unique O&O DriverLoader enables you to load drivers that aren't available by default. Detailed reports provide you with information about the various jobs you've run. Just as in the previous version, O&O DiskImage 3 Professional Edition comes with a Start CD based on the latest Windows versions. This allows for the creation of images even on defective operating systems.
The price for O&O DiskImage 3 Professional Edition has been reduced by almost 40% and is now available in stores for USD 29.95. An upgrade from a previous version or any currently competing product is available for USD 19.95. Additional versions of O&O DiskImage 3 with network management capabilities will also be released shortly.
New and Improved Functions
The new O&O DiskImage 3 Professional Edition allows you to run time-scheduled data imaging of entire systems as well as individual drives: this means you can now schedule data imaging to be performed automatically on a regular basis. If ever data loss occurs, the image can be restored and, in cases of system failure, the system will once again be operable. Reports are provided which will give you detailed information about the jobs you've run. Information such as the files you've excluded from the image or the kind of imaging method used will make it easier to maintain an overview of all activities.
The O&O DriverLoader enables you to load drivers that might not be normally available when starting. When it's booted from the CD, your computer will be scanned for all available hardware components. Should a standard driver be missing for any component that is identified, it will be displayed and the user will then be able to load it from a USB Stick, a CD or any other storage volume. The range of Windows drivers available in O&O DiskImage 3 has also been extended.
The AES algorithm in O&O DiskImage 3 Professional Edition protects imaged data from unauthorized access with an encryption level of up to 256 Bit. The image can only be restored when a password is entered. The compression process in Version 3 has also been optimized so that images take up even less space.
A Start CD based on current Windows versions is included with delivery of O&O DiskImage and will let you start the program without any prior installation. The CD even enables you to create images on defective systems. When trouble strikes, important personal or business data that are inaccessible will not be lost, and can easily be imaged before restarting. The integrated BareMetal option, which makes restoration possible without installation, has also been greatly improved in the new version.
