Power On Software left many Mac users speechless during last monthis MACWORLD Expo with demonstrations of their forthcoming, must-have utility, Rewind. Rewind allows users to take their Mac back in time to undo damage, recover lost files, or restore the computer to a state of peach and happy functionality from a previous time. Now, Power On says that the new product will be available in time for the holiday shopping season. According to Power On:
Rewind, Power On Softwareis incredible safety-net utility that made its debut at Macworld Expo in New York, was selected as Best of Show in the software category. A panel of experts from Macweek.com awarded the coveted honor to Power On Software for its amazing and innovative software technology breakthrough. Rewind protects against catastrophes, disasters, and user error that can spell the difference between success or failure, and adulation or humiliation.
Rewind, based on several new patent-pending technologies, gets users out of a bind by permitting them to merely click the programis Rewind button. The software then magically transports the user back to the instant before the problem occurred.
Rewind can reverse even the bleakest-looking situations and rescue users from potential tragedy. Using Rewind merely requires the user to click on the Rewind button. The program then permits the user to return to the moment just before disaster struck. Typical situations where Rewind can come to the rescue include:
- Accidentally overwriting or deleting a file
- Important data has been lost and no backup exists
- A virus has infected the entire machine and the virus was so new that no anti-virus software even knew how to detect it, let alone disinfect it
- New application software conflicts prevent the computer from booting
- System files have become damaged, the computer wonit start up, and the user doesnit have a System disk
- Virtually any other situation where the computer software had been operating normally until the fateful moment
Rewindis patent-pending technology remembers ALL the data that has been modified on a useris disks, allowing users to return to previous versions of documents, applications, or entire disks, with a single click on the Rewind button. And Rewindis breakthrough (and also patent-pending) Emergency Startup Mode allows users to reboot from their hard disk even if they have deleted or damaged the entire System Folder!
Rewind is a technological tour de force combined with an elegant and familiar interface. A simple on-screen calendar permits users to travel back in time by pointing and clicking at a date and time. Rewind is completely transparent, working unobtrusively in the background.
Rewind is expected to sell for US$99.95. You can find more information at the Power On web site.
