Ontrack data recovery introduces Ontrack Powercontrols™ version 4.2

Mailbox Recovery Tool Now Supports Microsoft Exchange 2007

MINNEAPOLIS – Feb. 6, 2007 – Ontrack Data Recovery™ today announced the availability of 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.

“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 Jim Reinert, senior director of Software and Services for Ontrack Data Recovery. “Existing Ontrack PowerControls customers that opt to migrate 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.”

Ontrack PowerControls is designed to run from a Windows®-based workstation and uses native Microsoft Messaging APIs (MAPI) to communicate with the Exchange Server, ensuring reliable and consistent operation of a server. Alternatively, Ontrack PowerControls 4.2 can be installed directly on Exchange Server 2007. In either configuration, Ontrack PowerControls is compatible with the new Exchange 2007 64-bit architecture.

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, minimizes the time it takes to locate all emails matching specific criteria using advanced searching capabilities, and eliminates the need for an Exchange recovery server.

Pricing and Availability

Different editions of Ontrack PowerControls 4.2 are available with pricing beginning at $950 for 100 mailboxes by calling Ontrack at 1-800-872-2599 or going online to www.ontrackpowercontrols.com.
