Ontrack launches data recovery and file repair family

~ expands EasyRecovery 6.0 to simplify retrieval and repair process ~

The EasyRecovery 6.0 family consists of three products - EasyRecovery DataRecovery, EasyRecovery FileRepair and EasyRecovery Professional. All offer improved graphical interfaces and enhanced recovery features. In addition, EasyRecovery 6.0 includes a more powerful data recovery engine and new customisable recovery options. These include the ability to ‘undelete’ files and recover accidentally formatted or reinstalled partitions. Recovered data can also be sent to an FTP destination.

The software allows recovery from a range of media. This includes IDE / ATA / EIDE and SCSI hard drives, floppy disks, Zip and Jaz removeable media, and digital media (CompactFlash, SmartMedia, flash memory and memory sticks) for files created on DOS, Windows 3.x, 95, 98, Me, 2000, NT and XP systems.

EasyRecovery DataRecovery recovers data that is lost, inaccessible or deleted due to human error, virus infection, corrupt file structures or inaccessible or unbootable partitions safely, quickly and easily. The emergency boot diskette can be used to recover data from systems that cannot boot to Windows. EasyRecovery DataRecovery includes repair capabilities for Microsoft Word and Zip files.

EasyRecovery FileRepair repairs and restores corrupted files that are inaccessible due to data corruption, application crashes, inadvertent system shutdowns and power outages into new, readable files. Repair capabilities are available for files created using modern versions of Microsoft Outlook (including corrupted PST and OST files exceeding the 2GB files size limitation), Access, Excel, PowerPoint, Word and Zip utilities.

EasyRecovery Professional is a complete, one-stop solution. It includes all of the features and benefits of EasyRecovery DataRecovery and EasyRecovery FileRepair. In addition, disk diagnostic tools are included, such as Ontrack DataAdvisor, with the most advanced data recovery capabilities and options available. EasyRecovery Professional comes in a free trial edition. This means users can view those deleted and corrupted files that can be recovered and repaired with a full version of EasyRecovery Professional.

“No one, be they an executive, a savvy computer technician or a home user, is immune to either losing data or worrying about the potential ramifications data loss can cause,” said Todd Johnson, general manager at Ontrack Europe. “The EasyRecovery 6.0 family offers a range of solutions that allow everyone to rest assured they are well protected from such loss.”

The EasyRecovery 6.0 family is available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish. EasyRecovery DataRecovery is available for £129, EasyRecovery FileRepair can be bought for £235 and EasyRecovery Professional costs £345. All three products are available via the Ontrack Web site at www.ontrack.co.uk/easyrecovery or from local retail stores.
