Access and Repair an Unworkable PC with Active@ Boot Disk
If your computer simply refuses to boot up, then you might think that all hope is lost, and it will be necessary to send it in for repairs or, at best, reinstall Windows and lose all your files. Fortunately, however, there is another way thanks to LSoft Technologies' Active@ Boot Disk software. This powerful software suite provides a wide range of tools to help you repair your computer, access files and much more. From data recovery to disk imaging to secure data erasure, Active@ Boot Disk is one of the industry-leading disk utility suites on the market. It works through an entirely self-contained boot environment as well. This means you can use it even if your computer won't boot or if your hard drive doesn't even have an operating system installed. The self-contained boot environment allows you to perform various tasks, all independently of your computer's operating system.Backup and Recovery Tools
Making sure you're prepared for the next massive cybersecurity attack is about more than just running the latest antivirus software. You should always keep important data backed up, but it's not always easy to tell exactly what needs to be archived. Active@ Boot Disk includes the latest disk imaging software for making a complete, byte-by-byte copy of all the data on your hard drive or other storage device. This is also useful if you want to replace your hard drive without having to completely reinstall your operating system and all your programs. It's also great in business scenarios, when you might need to upgrade multiple computers at the same time. Aside from disk imaging, Active@ Boot Disk includes everything you need for recovering existing disk images, recovering deleted data and restoring lost or damaged partitions.Independent Operating Environment
Active@ Boot Disk provides an enormous degree of functionality all from the convenience of an optical disk, USB flash drive or memory card. Even if you don't have a hard drive installed in your computer, this software suite provides a wide range of tools for completing common computing tasks. Included are various Internet utilities for browsing the web and checking your email. There are also remote desktop, Telnet and FTP clients for accessing remote resources over a network. Included document viewers allow you to preview many different types of file, which is also very useful when recovering or securely erasing data. The included image viewer supports virtually every type of image format you're ever likely to encounter. Other common PC tools, such as a calculator, task manager, registry editor and partition manager are also included.Securely Erase or Recover Deleted Data
Active@ File Recovery, Active@ Partition Recovery and Active@ KillDisk are all included in the software package. With the recovery applications, you can recover deleted data, formatted disks or deleted partitions with ease. However, if secure data erasure is your goal, then the Active@ KillDisk utility will make certain that deleted data will never be recoverable, since it will meticulously overwrite it with zeros. If you're selling or donating your PC or hard drive, this is a great option to have.
