Ontrack solves data loss dilemmas with low cost DIY solution

~ launches EasyRecovery Lite 6.0, a cost-effective data recovery tool ~

Ontrack has launched an advanced DIY solution that allows businesses and home users to recover lost or deleted files.

EasyRecovery Lite 6.0 can be downloaded from the Ontrack website (www.ontrack.co.uk/easyrecovery). The tool then recovers data that is lost, inaccessible or deleted due to human error, virus infection, corrupt file structures or inaccessible/unbootable partitions. It is able to recover up to 25 files per recovery session, at a cost of £49.99 + VAT.

EasyRecovery Lite 6.0 operates directly from Windows or from an emergency boot diskette and does not need to be preinstalled prior to data loss. It shows the user exactly which files are recoverable and then allows him/her to select those files for recovery.

"The loss of mission-critical data can have significant ramifications on businesses and home users alike," said Todd Johnson, general manager at Kroll Ontrack. "Being able to recover up to 25 files, without having to pay for a full recovery, is a low-cost way for small businesses to minimise downtime. Similarly, home users can recover lost data without shelling out on expensive licences."

EasyRecovery Lite 6.0 supports Windows 95, 98, XP, Me, 2000 and NT operating systems and can recover data from various types of media. These include IDE/ATA/EIDE hard drives, SCSI drives, floppy diskettes, Zip and Jaz removable media and digital media (CompactFlash, SmartMedia and memory sticks). The product is available in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.

EasyRecovery Lite 6.0 can be purchased from the Ontrack website at www.ontrack.co.uk/easyrecovery or by calling 00 800 10 12 13 14.
