Ontrack Data Recovery introduces Ontrack PowerControls 4.2

~ Mailbox recovery tool now supports Microsoft Exchange 2007 ~

Ontrack Data Recovery™ has released Ontrack PowerControls™ 4.2 software, the newest version of its widely used mailbox recovery tool.

Ontrack PowerControls 4.2 offers full support for Microsoft® Exchange 2007, allowing administrators already using Exchange 2007 to save time and attain better recovery performance, message viewing capabilities and advanced searching features. This upgraded version also supports Microsoft Outlook® 2007 in addition to providing all of the features and benefits of the current product.

Ontrack 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, Ontrack 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.

“The introduction of version 4.2 signals Ontrack Data Recovery’s continued commitment to offering unprecedented productivity improvements that Exchange administrators have come to rely on when recovering mail items,” said Phil Bridge, managing director, Ontrack Data Recovery. “Existing customers that opt to upgrade to Exchange 2007 can have full confidence in our ability to support this new platform and continue to reap the benefits that have defined Ontrack PowerControls since its inception.”
