One wrong click is enough to render Windows unusable. In this case, the SecuPerts First Aid Kit, which is delivered as a download and on bootable USB sticks, provides quick help. No matter whether a virus, a damaged hard disk or the installation of a tool is the trigger for a Windows that no longer starts - with this emergency package, users can easily save their Windows installation and data.
If Windows no longer wants to start, there is the threat of losing all data on the computer in addition to a lengthy reinstallation. In contrast, using an emergency system such as SecuPerts First Aid Kit is much less stressful.
The First Aid Kit is based on a Linux system that provides all the necessary tools for data and system recovery and can also be used by noncomputer experts thanks to its simple user guidance.
The scope of functions includes a virus scanner that can detect and remove viruses. The virus scanner contains technology from Avira. Even if persistent malware has switched off the virus scanner under Windows, the emergency system can do its job without any restrictions.
The First Aid Kit also has numerous tools for data recovery. For example, it can recover data at file level when the file systems are not or only slightly damaged. Data recovery works on external and internal drives, network drives and even cloud storage. In case of damaged file systems, accidentally formatted disks and defective blocks, the emergency system can recover block-level data and thus prevent the worst disaster.
If the hard disk has a technical defect, the data of the entire hard disk can be transferred 1:1 to another hard disk, so that users have the opportunity to rescue a large part of the data despite a defective hard disk.
In addition to data recovery, the First Aid Kit also includes tools for the secure deletion of data. This is useful if the computer or hard drive is to be sold.
