A new generation of PC protection products has evolved because business users recognize the importance of system availability. If you can't open documents, print files, or send email because your system is down, tape backup copies of your files are of limited value. The ability to open documents, log on to the network, and stay productive is far more precious in today's fast paced business environment.

 
ReZOOM Features
 
Bootable Backup

[ top of page]

ReZOOM takes advantage of the plummeting price of desktop storage by requiring a dedicated second hard disk. ReZOOM uses this disk to create a bootable backup copy of your critical system and data files. If your primary drive develops problems, ReZOOM can start your system from the backup disk..."on the fly". It's a "spare engine" for your Windows 95 or NT computer that gets you back up and working with a copy of all your essential applications and data intact. All your preferences, printer, internet settings, applications and data will run from the backup disk.

 
Automatic Protection

[ top of page]

Once installed, ReZOOM runs in the background protecting files while you work, during idle time or on a schedule you specify. ReZOOM is designed to use an on-line device as a backup destination, such as a low cost IDE hard drive. This makes ReZOOM a true "hands off" solution which works continuously and automatically. No tapes to track or scripts to run. This lowers the cost of PC ownership and provides the peace of mind that ReZOOM is always protecting your critical files.

How ReZOOM Works

 
Fast and Unobtrusive

[ top of page]

ReZOOM copies only the files that have changed since the last backup. It performs these periodic updates so fast you'll never notice it's protecting your data. It even backs up open files so you'll always have the most current copies of your important documents on the backup disk.

 
Flexible Configuration

[ top of page]

Use any low-cost IDE hard drive as a spare drive The ReZOOM emergency drive can be any hard drive (SCSI or IDE). ReZOOM allows you to select what files to protect. This means you can even configure a small hard disk as the emergency backup to a larger C: drive. Users can choose to protect files stored on more than one logical volume (for example- C: D: and E:) with a single ReZOOM disk.

 
Won't backup software problems

[ top of page]

Most system crashes are caused by software conflicts. ReZOOM includes an additional safeguard by creating a "virtual firewall" around the backup system files. A filtering mechanism ensures any new files added to the primary C: drive are verified for software problems and viruses before they're saved to your bootable backup drive. This critical feature means instant recovery is always a keystroke away.

 
The Self-Healing PC

[ top of page]

In the event you need to invoke the emergency boot disk, ReZOOM includes a built-in repair wizard which runs automatically from the backup disk. This easy-to-follow Windows based program can fix many common problems on the primary C: drive including missing or damaged OS files, FAT or registry corruption, bad boot blocks or partition tables.

 
Undo System Problems

[ top of page]

In the event you install a new software program and it proceeds to crash your system at startup, ReZOOM can help. Patent pending "footprint" technology allows you to easily revert back to your last "good" configuration. ReZOOM knows which files may have changed and can safely synchronize any inconsistencies.

 
Effortless Restore

[ top of page]

Restore data

ReZOOM allows quick and easy restores of individual files you may have lost or deleted. Or, in the event your primary C: drive is faulty and must be replaced, you can remove it and continue working. Once you replace your C: drive, the ReZOOM repair wizard will automatically detect and prepare the new hard disk and rebuild your system in one step.

 
Remote Notification

[ top of page]

E-mail Options (remote notification)

ReZOOM offers a unique e-mail notification feature ideal for IS technicians and PC service providers. In the event the user invokes the bootable backup drive, ReZOOM runs an automated repair routine. If ReZOOM can not fix the problem for you, it sends an e-mail message to the support organization of your choice (requires POP3 compliant mail server). It includes a text summary which assesses the health of the PC. This allows service organizations to respond proactively. It also helps eliminate unnecessary repair visits by distinguishing software vs. hardware problems in advance.

 
All-in-one Solution

[ top of page]

ReZOOM offers backup, restore, repair then adds instant recovery to eliminate costly downtime and protect user productivity. It's the first software utility to integrate these sophisticated features in a single package designed for non-technical users.
