Ontrack Data Recovery launches PowerControls™ 4.0

~ provides more powerful searching and reporting capabilities and expanded email system support ~

Ontrack Data Recovery™, the world’s largest data recovery provider, has launched Ontrack® PowerControls™ 4.0, the latest version of its widely-used mailbox recovery software tool. The upgraded version helps simplify email management by enabling administrators to retrieve individual mails and mailboxes from full backups. It also provides expanded backup format support for CommVault® Galaxy™ and UltraBac Software.

The advanced searching capabilities in the newest version of PowerControls allow for quicker response to restore requests, translating to faster support for end users.

“Email management continues to be a challenge for storage administrators as storage requirements increase in both volume and complexity,” said Adrian Palmer, managing director of Ontrack Data Recovery, UK. “Amongst other features, PowerControls 4.0 allows the user to search within attachment text, open public folders and create data store reports. All these additions make it easier to respond to requests on time.”

PowerControls, which earned ‘Verified for Microsoft Windows XP’ status through independent testing, is used by IT professionals to quickly and easily search, copy and restore message-level or individual mailbox items from any previous full backup, un-mounted databases (.edb) and Information Store files. Requiring no changes to the existing Exchange server or backup architecture, PowerControls slashes restore time, eliminates brick-level back-ups, minimises the time it takes to locate all emails matching specific criteria using advanced searching capabilities, and eliminates the need for an Exchange recovery server. PowerControls 4.0 contains all of the features and benefits of the current product, plus more:

PowerControls 4.0 now offers ExtractWizard support for both CommVault® Galaxy™ and UltraBac Software backup formats. Now serving a total of nine different backup formats, ExtractWizard helps to restore Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store data from tape and disk backups to any alternate location (e.g. machine, volume, folder), thereby eliminating the need to restore backups to a duplicate Exchange server - better known as a ‘recovery server’ – which vastly reduces cost.

By providing the fastest method for recovering and restoring messages from CommVault Galaxy and UltraBac, PowerControls makes it easier for users of these popular email backup solutions to meet compliance requirements. Support also is available for Microsoft® NT Backup, Veritas BackupExec™, Legato NetWorker®, Computer Associates® BrightStor™ ARCServe®, Veritas NetBackup™, IBM® Tivoli®, and HP OpenView Storage Data Protector formats.

About PowerControls 4.0

Advanced searching
PowerControls searches attachment text for user-defined keywords or phrases. A new ‘Search In’ checkbox allows users to search within attachment text in addition to Message Subject, Message Body, and Attachment File Name(s), allowing them to search any combination.

Reporting feature
PowerControls now features the ability to create data store reports that provide statistical analysis (message counts, attachment information, sizes, etc.) on any combination of stores completely offline from the production Exchange Server – the first product to provide this level of reporting capability offline from the server. Benefits of this feature include minimising the time it takes to obtain administrative information on a user’s account and minimising the time it takes to obtain detailed account and user statistics.

Public folders as target PowerControls allows the user to open public folders as a target for public folder or message restores. Users will be able to restore complete folders or individual files from a .pub database to a public folder target. All folder permissions and messages will be transferred to the target folders. In addition, users will be able to copy messages from any database source or search results to a public folder target.

Pricing and availability Different editions of PowerControls 4.0 are available with pricing starting at £649 for 100 mailboxes by calling Ontrack on 0800 243 966 or online at www.ontrack.co.uk/powercontrols.
