O&O BlueCon 14: Disaster Recovery - FREE Whitepaper Now Available!
Neither hardware nor software providers like to hear it: disaster involving a computer being fully down, crashing, or no longer accessible still happens – and, unfortunately, not too rarely. The Ransomware attack from “Wanna Cry” infected more than 120,000 PCs within mere hours! O&O BlueCon 14 is a high-performance collection of comprehensive tools to get damaged Windows systems up and running again with no new installation required.
A blue screen usually means a lot of work for administrators. When things get really bad, there’s no other choice but to configure a new system setup. And this is where O&O BlueCon comes in. O&O BlueCon is at an administrator’s side during the course of a daily routine as well as whenever disaster strikes. Based on Windows PE, it offers a wide range of programs for, among other things, repairing systems, searching and correcting errors, restoring lost data, resetting passwords, and the list goes on.
Start straight from boot medium!
From deactivating faulty drivers to resetting user passwords and reconstructing deleted data, O&O BlueCon belongs to the standard tool box of any IT administrator. Various O&O products are included in the current version which can, for example, recover lost data (O&O DiskRecovery 11), securely delete confidential data (O&O SafeErase 11) or make a forensic image of a system (O&O DiskImage 11, available in the Plus Edition). The latest version supports Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, enables a network boot thanks to compatibility with Windows Deployment Services (PXE) and scripting over Windows 10 networks.
Create a PXE Boot medium from BuildPE
In a Microsoft network environment, clients can now be started over a network – no DVD or USB stick is required. Using the PXE boot medium created within O&O BlueCon, customers can now boot a computer over their networks from a remote machine, rather than having to use a local medium such as a hard disk, CD, DVD or USB stick. The medium created in O&O BlueCon can be held on a central server and then activated for certain computers when needed, without this boot medium having to be physically available. The PXE server required to do this (Windows Deployment Service) is available in a Microsoft Domain or can be installed.
NEW: Free Whitepaper now available!
Our brand new Whitepaper will explain why such situations not only put limitations on business operations but also contribute to higher costs. It will show how O&O BlueCon 14 can help those responsible for IT services resolve any such problems quickly, securely, and dependably.
