PASADENA, CALIFORNIA and PORTLAND, DORSET, UNITED KINGDOM December 31 2003--- iolo technologies, LLC (), a leading developer and manufacturer of software products designed to enhance the performance and security of PCs running the Microsoft Windows operating systems, has named the Portland, Dorset-based ITRed Ltd () as a distributor for their new Search and Recover(TM) file recovery software for the UK market.
Search and Recover is an arsenal of powerful tools designed to allow PC users to quickly and easily find and recover deleted, destroyed, and damaged items from their computers, even after the Recycle Bin has been emptied. Recoverable items include files, folders, songs, pictures, videos, programs, critical system components, web pages, and email messages in Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Express, Netscape, and Eudora.
Search and Recover works with Windows versions 95, 98, Me, NT4, 2000, XP; all hard and floppy drives, including IDE, SCSI, Zip, USB, and FireWire; all formats, including FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, NTFS; as well as all portable digital media, including digital cameras, MP3 players, SmartMedia(TM) cards, Compact Flash cards, memory sticks, and USB flash drives. Search and Recover also retrieves deleted email messages, attachments, calendars, contacts, notes, and tasks in Microsoft Outlook.
Search and Recover's Rescue Wizard lets users recover important files and folders in three easy steps. They simply select the types of files to find, the places to look for these files, and then recover the items found with one click. Its advanced search capabilities allow users to find just the file they're looking for. Files can be previewed before recovery, allowing them to extract information even if the original file is damaged.
In addition, Search and Recover allows users to create and work with emergency disk images. They can create an exact copy of all data on their hard drives, CD-ROMs, and DVD-ROMs and then save them as one single file for later access. The image file is simply mounted, and the original drive or disk with all data intact is accessible in Windows. Disk images can be used as the ultimate backup tool: all data, including lost, deleted, or damaged data is backed up and ready to use at any time.
Bonus security features also let users quickly and securely delete ANY existing file or folder on their systems, keeping private data away from other recovery tools and thereby out of unwanted hands. Users can securely delete any file or folder by overwriting up to 100 times, thereby removing and sanitizing existing deleted items.
ITRed CEO Danny Hamilton-Mills explained the objectives of his company. "We provide a professional and cost-effective method for international software companies to enter the UK market. We are a customer-client focused operation and our team prides itself in taking its pro-active approach to helping these organisations introduce their products to a wider customer base.

iolo Director of Business Development Francis Johnson also added: "iolo technologies has been experiencing tremendous success with our software, and we're very excited about the introduction of Search and Recover into the UK market. Many PC users worldwide have experienced the loss of important files, folders, system components, and other data at one time or another. Search and Recover will help more people retrieve these lost items immediately."
