Berlin (PRWEB) December 11, 2008
O&O Software releases the popular data rescue solution O&O RescueBox 5 with two additional components. For the first time, the First Aid kit for rescuing data has been expanded to include two additional data security components. Besides the products to restore deleted data - O&O UnErase 4.1, O&O FormatRecovery 4.1 and O&O DiskRecovery 4.1 - it is now also possible to benefit from the data imaging solution O&O DiskImage 3.1, as well as from O&O PartitionManager 2 which creates, changes the size, and securely deletes partitions.
O&O RescueBox 5 comes with a Start CD based on Windows PE, allowing access to the programs without the need for a successful Windows installation. Data can now also be rescued when the operating system is damaged.
O&O RescueBox 5 Personal Edition can be acquired as a single computer license for USD 149.95 and as an upgrade for USD 89.95. Owners of previous versions of the O&O RescueBox or of one of the products included on it are eligible to upgrade, as well as owners of competing products.
Additional programs for more data security
As well as the usual O&O data rescue products O&O UnErase 4.1, O&O FormatRecovery 4.1 and O&O DiskRecovery 4.1, there are now two additional programs available in the new O&O RescueBox 5: O&O DiskImage 3.1 for creating images and restoring data, and O&O PartitionManager 2, which manages and creates partitions. All programs are compatible with Windows. They can also be started directly from CD and do not require a running operating system.
O&O UnErase 4.1, O&O FormatRecovery and O&O DiskRecovery 4.1 are three software products for data rescue that complement each other perfectly. The programs use various search algorithms to achieve maximum results. Rescuing data is possible on all volumes compatible with Windows, including internal and external hard disks (IDE, SATA, SCSI etc.), digital cameras, MP3 players, USB and memory sticks, memory cards and disks.
O&O DiskImage 3.1 creates images of entire systems or individual drives. It can do so even when the system will not start up anymore or if the storage volume is not recognized by Windows. In the case of a defective storage volume, O&O DiskImage can start initializing data rescue measures after imaging on an undamaged storage volume. Time scheduled imaging allows the user to plan the creation of images regularly and automatically at predetermined intervals.
Managing hard disks
To enhance data security on a computer it is helpful to create various partitions. O&O PartitionManager 2 allows you to organize your hard disks into partitions, to move them and to modify their size. MBR data volumes, dynamic and GPT data volumes are recognized and supported as well as removable volumes, such as USB sticks and memory cards.
The one-of-a-kind Start CD, which is based on Windows PE and therefore carries its own operating system, makes it possible to use the programs included in the O&O RescueBox without a running Windows installation. Accessing hardware is secured by the Windows drivers included in Windows PE. Non-standard drivers can be loaded retrospectively by using O&O DriverLoader. When starting the O&O RescueBox from CD, no previous installation of the programs is necessary. It also contains several system rescue and management functions, such as O&O FileExplorer, O&O RegEditor and O&O CheckDisk.
