Berlin, April 19, 2011 – System repair, locating errors and correcting them, restoring lost data, resetting passwords, deleting data permanently and managing local user accounts – O&O BlueCon 8 is the standard commercial tool for the rescue of computer systems.

The seamless integration of all components into one package means O&O BlueCon saves the user the tedious process of compiling various programs. By supporting Hyper-V, O&O BlueCon 8 can also be used in virtual environments.
