Developer description of program

When you sell, destroy or return your old computer to the leasing firm, did you know that the data on it is almost never fully deleted? Even when hard disks are formatted, anyone can take ordinary data recovery software and easily get hold of things like your customer data, construction plans or your passwords. The fact is: data deleted in Windows is easily recovered again.

So what to do? Well, with O&O SafeErase, you can securely delete individual folders as well as entire computers, using internationally recognized and recommended methods, so that it is never capable of being accessed again. Some of these techniques are being employed by the U. S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the German Department for Security in Information Technology (BSI). That’s how safe it is.

O&O SafeErase also protects your privacy. Every time you surf the net, traces of your activities are left in the history, including sites visited and your profile. Data spies or identity thieves are masters in following these traces and assuming your identity or accessing your bank or credit card. One click with O&O SafeErase securely deletes all these traces too. The ultimate protection, made easy for you.

An early-warning system for hard disk crashes

With it, you’ll always have time to backup your data and so avoid losing any of it when exchanging a hard disk. This is time a sudden crash will never give you.

O&O UnErase 6

Developer description of program

We’ve all done it. One faulty click, and suddenly you can’t find that important file, photo or address database – and you don’t always have a backup. O&O UnErase will be able to find and restore those deleted files within just a matter of seconds. In almost the blink of an eye, important documents, digital photos, and videos will be back in your hands again.

Erased data is marked as “available” on a hard disk or memory card. So even the simple installation or downloading of a data recovery program from the internet can overwrite this data, and all chance of rescuing it are gone. That’s why O&O UnErase should already be installed on your computer before the loss of data occurs, because the speed at which you act is of the essence. Or put it this way: do you have a stock of plasters at home, or do you wait until someone injures themselves before you go buy some?!

Developer description of program

These days we save practically everything on some digital device, be that cameras, MP3 players or computers. But we can still lose things, just like we did in the “paper days”!

O&O MediaRecovery is designed to rescue data from removable drives such as MP3 players, digital cameras, memory cards (e.g., SD, MMC, xD as well others), hard disks, and, of course, devices such as the Apple iPod. Simply install O&O MediaRecovery on your computer and connect the storage volume from which you wish to recover data. After the program starts, the O&O MediaRecovery wizard guides you step by step through the recovery process so that you will quickly regain access to your lost data.

After completion of a scanning process, you can even view the files that are capable of being restored before you decide which ones you’d like. The preview function of O&O MediaRecovery supports most picture formats, including JPEG, BMP, and TIF.

NOTE: The above description is of MediaRecovery 6. I could not find a developer description for MediaRecovery 4.

Developer description of program

Current storage volume capacities have now skyrocketed into the terabyte range, a fact that was, only a few years ago, completely unimaginable. Naturally, the notion of so much space combined with the wide world of internet downloads has lead to ever increasingly diverse contents on today’s hard disks: from installed programs and games to videos, pictures and music. To store a backup of so much data is no easy task. Even more challenging, however, is separating the important files for backup from the unimportant ones.

O&O DiskStat is a high-power tool for analyzing the used disk space on your storage volumes. With an easy-to-use interface based on the design of the Windows Explorer, you can take a closer look at the file and folder structure of your internal and external drives. Through intuitive and beautiful graphical representations you will find out which files, file types and folders are taking up the most space.
