Paragon Software released the free Rescue Kit for Mac OS X – Lite which allows users to recover quickly and easily from system problems by rescuing important data and restoring their system back to its original state.
The software helps to prevent data loss in the event of a disaster such as a system crash or other mishap. The solution aids in the recovery of vital data to another destination such as a removable drive, another hard drive or network volume. The tool kit comes with fully automated wizards that allow users to easily backup and restore partitions. It is the only solution which can perform a sector-level backup, enabling end users to backup and restore the entire system much faster than typical utilities available today.
The product incorporates Paragon’s NTFS for Mac technology, which allows rapid reading and writing of data to NTFS volumes and easily transfers data between Windows and Mac partitions. It also includes a File Transfer Wizard, which gives end users complete access to any file system, even those not supported by the OS or even if it is on an un-mounted partition (i.e. drive letter is not assigned).
