System Restore Made Convenient
NovaBACKUP 13 makes life easy for those needing to restore their critical data and make it available in a hurry. With the addition of a universal restore tool, users achieve the capability for seamless restoration of a complete system to dissimilar hardware. Free of identical-hardware requirements, users maintain maximum control over where and how their data-protection solution works for them.

Users of version 13 will benefit from Windows PE as a boot environment for the restoration of a system. Instead of having to use supplied boot images which may not always be current, NovaBACKUP 13 users start the restore of a complete system with the WinPE a platform which is continuously updated by Microsoft for the use of current hardware.

Backup and Restore According to Personal Requirements
Version 13 provides full, incremental and differential backup for file storage and imaging. After a full backup, incremental file backups or images help users quickly

and efficiently update their backup data, keeping information current and conserving resources at the same time.

Furthermore, added imaging functionality creates visibility into the image file structure. Individual files and folders are easy to locate and recover. Users receive greater benefit from the ability to adapt their backup solution to match specific system properties and to ensure, for example; the reliable backup and restore of encrypted hard drives. NovaBACKUP 13 provides extensive imaging methods for customized backup strategies.
