Even when one does make regular backups, just one click of the wrong folder can destroy the result of hours or days of work. O&O DiskRecovery helps users who urgently need to recover their data quickly and with no prior experience or knowledge required.

A variety of data - customer data, product development, accounts – all form the basis and capital of any company. In the "pre-digital" era it was adequate for data security purposes to shred unneeded documents using a paper shredder.

The use of professional software for data deletion is the solution for the proper management of corporate data and hardware in the digital age.

The program can be started from a disk or over a network and so prevents any additional data loss that might occur by direct installation.

This is now also possible for the Windows Server 2012.

The volume of data being saved, edited, and then saved again on servers in company networks is growing constantly.

Routine defragmentation on servers with O&O Defrag 16 significantly reduces the time needed for backing up data.
