Creates bootable system disks for emergencies

Recover data and preserve sensitive files. Launch an operating system from a generated bootable drive. The program writes system data and structures onto CD/DVD/USB disks and does not modify them in any way to maintain a fully functioning environment.

Active@ Boot Disk Creator has been designed to create bootable media that you can use to repair Windows installations that fail to boot properly. And if the operating system cannot be fixed by any means, it is at least possible to rescue important data.

The tool has a straightforward interface and you will be assisted by a wizard during the whole process. Moreover, you can consult its detailed user guide if you have any difficulties. The first step consists in selecting the target media from the various types supported. Thus, you can use an optical disc, a USB removable device or even create an ISO image. Then, you should pick the target operating system. In this respect, the tool allows using Windows Preinstallation Environment (WinPE) or FreeDOS. Next, you can set various boot parameters, such as languages, display resolution and default application. Likewise, it is possible to configure your network connection. Not only that, you can protect boot-up with the desired password. In addition, it is excellent that you can also add the drivers needed by your computer to start.

The bootable media you create with this program is called Active@ Boot Disk and contains a set of tools to recover files, reset Windows passwords, create backups of the whole system and erase data securely. It allows you to bypass the installed operating system to access the files on the drive. In this regard, various Active@ tools are packed in the rescue media, including Disk Image, Data CD/DVD Burner, Partition Recovery, File Recovery, Password Changer, Disk Editor, KillDisk and Partition Manager.

In general, the real value of Active@ Boot Disk Creator is derived from the features included in the rescue media. Various types of licenses are available for this product. There are personal and enterprise licenses with varying features and prices. Unfortunately, this product is not very affordable.
