Ontrack Data Recovery addresses demand for recovering and repairing Microsoft® Outlook and Outlook Express email files with "do-it-yourself" software

Easyrecovery Emailrepair™ offers a much-needed email recovery solution

MINNEAPOLIS, August 12, 2003 – Kroll Ontrack Inc., provider of Ontrack Data Recovery products and services and a wholly owned subsidiary of Kroll Inc. (NASDAQ: KROL), announced today the addition of EasyRecovery EmailRepair to its EasyRecovery™ “do-it-yourself” data recovery software product line. The new EasyRecovery EmailRepair gives Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express email users a powerful, cost-effective recovery solution that quickly and easily recovers and repairs lost or corrupted Outlook email files.

“As email has evolved into one of the most popular* and important forms of communication, so too has the value and importance of messages exchanged and stored,” said Jim Reinert, Director, Ontrack Data Recovery Software and Services. “And because Outlook and Outlook Express dominate the market, you have literally hundreds of thousands of people who rely on them for email, from small businesses, educational institutions and non-profit organizations to medium and large size businesses.”

EasyRecovery EmailRepair rounds out the full line of email recovery and repair products by Ontrack Data Recovery adding new capabilities to now support Outlook Express. This new product recovers and repairs Outlook Express and Outlook files –including those exceeding 2GB limitation– that have been corrupted due to application crash, inadvertent system shutdown, data corruption and power outages. The product supports Microsoft Outlook 97, 2000, XP and Outlook Express 5.0, 5.01, 5.5, and 6 versions, running on Windows 98SE, Me, NT, 2000 and XP.

“Until now, a large number of users combined with a limited number of advanced data recovery solutions available for Outlook Express meant that data loss from a computer crash, power outage or a natural disaster would, in most cases, have irreversible consequences. EasyRecovery EmailRepair brings users an advanced recovery solution under the seal of a company that has nearly 20 years of experience in bringing data back from virtually any situation, including those where the data was thought to have been lost forever,” concluded Reinert.

EasyRecovery EmailRepair is currently available for $279 USD online at www.ontrack.com or by calling 800-872-2599.

*According to market research group, IDC, the number of emails sent will grow to 60 billion a day in 2006 from approximately 31 billion a day in 2002.
