PowerQuest's SecondChance Now Supports Windows Millennium Edition

OREM, Utah - Oct. 10, 2000 - PowerQuest® Corp., a provider of proven solutions for storage management, announces the newest update to its point-in-time system replication software, SecondChance™ 2.07, which now supports Windows® Millennium Edition, the new operating system from Microsoft® that released this month.

"While the release of Windows Millennium will offer additional features and functionality to its users, it will not lessen the need for computer users to protect their data and computer systems," said Craig Bushman, senior director of global marketing at PowerQuest. "This update to SecondChance reiterates our commitment to providing our customers with the storage protection solutions they need in a way that is compatible with the most current versions of the operating systems they use."

SecondChance takes "Checkpoints" of the computer system, tracking changes made to the system between Checkpoints. When unwanted changes occur, SecondChance can rescue the system by taking the computer or specific files back to any previous Checkpoint, restoring the computer or files to the exact state they were in prior to the changes.

"I recently made an online purchase of SecondChance, and I think it is incredible," said Eric J. Fridman, a PowerQuest customer from Baltimore. "I've tried many products claiming in one respect or another to do the same thing, and SecondChance is the first I've found that keeps its promises. I frequently add and remove software from my PC and tweak its performance. This product gives me peace of mind that I can recover if I blunder."

SecondChance provides protection against system crashes, application conflicts and user errors and also can be used to reverse the effects of most viruses.
