Ontrack 11 adds power to destroy

Kroll Ontrack has updated its Ontrack EasyRecovery data recovery software adding the ability to permanently delete data at the file/folder level, and support for data recovery and permanent data destruction in virtual environments. 

Version 11 includes Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T. Scan) allowing users to proactively monitor hard drive health to prevent downtime and data loss. In seconds, S.M.A.R.T. Scan identifies the amount and type of data being used, the condition of sectors, and other critical hard drive metrics (read error rate, spin-up time, reallocated sector count, seek error rate, spin retry count and temperature), allowing users to make informed decisions about whether to repair or replace hardware, budget for new hardware to mitigate a data loss situation, or simply clean out hard drive space.

Ontrack EasyRecovery 11 permanently deletes data at the file and folder level or across an entire drive to mitigate the risk associated with lingering digital footprints.

To assist IT professionals with data recovery and deletion in virtual environments, Ontrack EasyRecovery 11 supports the recovery of lost or deleted virtual data and offers permanent and secure deletion of virtual files and folders.

Installation of Ontrack EasyRecovery is fast with most users recovering data in minutes. The powerful scanning engine builds a file list of all recoverable files from local/external hard drives (HDD/SSD), optical and digital media, iPods, tablet devices and mobile phones that work as removable storage and disk image files. Recoverable files can be previewed and all recovery operations are secure. Supported languages include Dutch, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, Chinese and Japanese.

Ontrack EasyRecovery is offered in three editions: Home $79, Professional $149 and Enterprise $499 via an annual, renewable licenses.
