OfficeRecovery News #052 for March 10, 2009

Data Recovery Suites 2009 - Overview

Recoveronix announces the 2009 lineup of its data recovery software suites: MailRecovery, OfficeRecovery, DBRecovery and MediaHeal.

The suites cover four major areas of application:

  • Corporate and personal email
  • Office productivity products
  • Databases
  • Corrupted media ranging from hard disks to flash drives

One important common feature of the new suites is that they are packaged using the Windows Installer. This provides for better compatibility with Windows Vista and the upcoming Windows 7 platform.

The new MSI-enabled suites can be easily installed on a home computer - or deployed automatically across a corporate network with Microsoft Active Directory. Using MSI installers saves time for systems administrators and allows easy management and upgrades.

Apart from the new installer, there are numerous improvements in each suite. New products have been added, new features introduced and bugs have been fixed. The specific updates for each suite are discussed in separate news articles.

MailRecovery 2009

MailRecovery 2009 suite has Client and Server editions. Client edition provides data recovery tools for Microsoft Outlook, while the Server edition takes on complex tasks of Microsoft Exchange Server data recovery and administration.

MailRecovery 2009 Client got an improved core component, Recovery for Outlook. Better support for international messages and fixes in handling named properties contribute to increased quality of data recovery from corrupted Personal Storage (PST) files.

The Server edition of MailRecovery 2009 suite features a major addition: Visual Recovery for Exchange Server. The new tool caters to the need of granular recovery of items from offline email databases.

Visual Recovery for Exchange Server works with healthy and corrupted Exchange databases alike. Useful for daily administration, it is invaluable for emergency granular recovery. In many cases, the utility will open EDB files turned down by Exchange and standard repair utilities.
