Copy & Protect your Data for Complete System Recovery

Perfect Image 12 Backup & Protect Suite Provides the Latest Data Backup Solution

News release
4th June 2009


Avanquest Software, a leading developer and publisher of business and consumer software for the global PC market, has announced the release of Perfect Image 12 Backup and Protect Suite. This comprehensive software package includes all the necessary tools to protect a PC or laptop by copying its entire contents including the operating system, for a complete backup and convenient disaster recovery solution, or for moving to a new PC.


Perfect Image 12 Backup and Protect Suite offers reliable backup in case of viral attacks, hard drive failure or accidental deletion. Users can easily create an exact copy of their whole system, keeping all programs, preferences and important personal data such as photos, music and email safe and secure. Avanquest’s Activeback™ Technology continuously and automatically creates backups to ensure that up to the minute content is stored without scheduling or interrupting user activity.


Users can save drive space by excluding any unnecessary files and backing up only the data they require, using the one-click copy wizard to automatically select what to backup and where to send it. Content can then be copied to a wide range of compatible storage devices including Jazz®, ZIP®, local and network drives, CD, DVD and the new options of Blu-Ray disc and USB flash drive.


Perfect Image 12 Backup and Protect Suite also includes a free copy of Disk Copy & Clean, worth £19.99, providing users with a value for money package. Disk Copy & Clean enables easy migration to a new system by cloning hard drives and enabling automatic transfer of all programs, applications, settings and data in just one click. This replica will run even if the OS is unstable or no longer working, providing users with access to their files at all times.


Disk Copy & Clean will also permanently erase content from an old hard drive to ensure data is completely unrecoverable and will not fall into the hands of identity thieves.


New features of Perfect Image 12 Backup and Protect Suite include:

  • Incremental file backup – to save time and space by backing up just files which have changed since the last backup
  • USB recovery – to allow users to create bootable media on an external USB flash drive in case of operating system corruption or boot problems (a recovery CD is also included).
  • Blu-ray disc support – to archive large backups from 25GB up to 50GB of data
  • GPT Drive support – to replicate large drives of more than 2TB
  • Mac and Linux operating systems can also be protected and restored with the Linux boot CD included


“Viruses, phishing and fraudulent hackers are an increasingly common problem that can contribute to destabilising a home PC or small business system,” states Dave Brass, Managing Director of Avanquest Software Publishing. “In today’s paperless society a lot of information is stored electronically so it’s important to keep a system backed up to adequately protect personal and financial details from being lost as a result of such threats. Perfect Image 12 Backup and Protect Suite provides an effective solution for keeping PC data secure, so users do not have to worry about it being lost or accessed by strangers.”
