of the big challenges that computers users eventually face is when something goes
wrong with their computer. All of a sudden one day it's not
right anymore, it's locking up, crashing, acting strangely,
maybe not booting at all. Maybe it just seems to have slowed
down to a crawl. Now what do you do? You can't be
without your computer. Do you take it to a computer store and
pay $50-75/hr so some kid can look at it? Are you
knowledgeable enough to fix any self-imposed problem with your
computer software? Who is? Got a nerd friend that makes house
calls? He probably won't be your friend for long if you pester
him too much.
BootIt Next Generation is the ultimate
solution to these worries. With
the use of "on-the-fly" partitioning of the hard
drive, partition images and multi-booting, it makes child's play
of avoiding computer interruptions due to computer crashes and protecting
important files, all with no CPU overhead.
For example, I build custom computer systems, and the other
day a client's son installed some software on his Windows XP
computer which resulted in Windows XP refusing to load
afterwards. I attempted to use XP's Repair Console but
it just was not cooperating, the C: drive was
badly damaged. Because I had made a BootIt NG Image
of the C: drive in advance, stored on the D: partition (also
created with BootIt NG), I was able to restore the system to
working condition in 10 minutes. Because I had relocated the
Mail Store, My Documents, and Favorites folders to the D: drive
in advance also, no essential data was lost.
Incidentally, you can easily run separate instances (copies)
of Windows on the same computer, or run other Operating Systems
like Linux at the same time also.
