O&O BlueCon V6: Rescues Systems When the Going Gets Tough

A total crash of the Windows system is every administrator's worst nightmare. It is in such emergencies where O&O BlueCon V6 comes to the rescue. When all else fails, O&O BlueCon V6 provides the necessary tools to get access to the system again.

BERLIN, Oct. 9 -- There is barely a disaster much worse that can hit a computer: the system has crashed badly and Windows will no longer boot up. To install the system anew would result in a total loss of data - a nightmare scenario.

The new O&O BlueCon V6 comes to the rescue in an emergency. The program contains software for complete system recovery, and is based on an original Windows PE operating system. This system enables O&O BlueCon V6 to start direct from the CD - there is no need for the creation of an emergency start CD or to install a program. Complex driver integration for the hardware is also not required as all the original Microsoft drivers are already included within Windows PE (Preinstalled Environment).

As soon as O&O BlueCon V6 is started, the administrator has full, unfettered access to the most important Windows settings in the systems targeted for recovery. With the RegistryEditor administrators can edit the settings in the Registry database. The FileExplorer enables the backing-up of important files - onto an external hard disk, for instance. A computer management function and many more tools all help to get a damaged Windows system up and running - with absolutely no new installation or loss of data. Thanks to a Windows-based interface with mouse support, operating the individual programs is made a simple and pleasant experience.

Frank Alperstaedt from O&O Software: "Until now, anyone losing or forgetting their Windows password had to re-install Windows. With O&O BlueCon V6 administrators can delete or amend passwords for local user accounts without having to know the old password."

Rescue Data With the O&O RescueBox

The advanced editions of O&O BlueCon version 6 also include the entire data recovery portfolio from O&O Software. The programs O&O DiskRecovery V4, O&O FormatRecovery V4 and O&O UnErase V4 are all included in delivery.

Be it through the accidental formatting of a data storage medium or through a virus attack, these data recovery solutions help to recover important data that on the face of it appears to have been permanently deleted. Thanks to the data recovery solutions included, it is also possible to restore data from newly installed operating systems.

This works the other way, too: The included O&O SafeErase enables files, partitions or entire hard disks to be so securely deleted that not even professionals are in a position to recover the original data.

-- Software starts direct from CD, with no prior installation required
