Selkie Data Rescue by Tugboat Enterprises

by Michael E. Callahan aka Dr. File Finder


For years I've had a saying that I share with family and friends. The saying is, "Computers are great when they're working well, but when they aren't they can drive you crazy!" Over the nearly 30 years that I've been in computers I've found that to be true. If your computer is running smoothly it's a beautiful tool. If not, however, it can be the bane of your existence.

Too many people take their computers for granted. The same people who always get the oil changed on their car or have fertilizer put on their lawn forget to do basic maintenance on their computers. They don't defragment, they don't check for spyware, they may not check for viruses, and they don't backup the hard drives. If this sounds like you I can tell you with certainty that you are headed towards disaster!

A couple of years ago I found a product that is a perfect tool if your computer starts to die. Believe me, it will die. Sometimes the death is slow, but other times it's sudden, like a heart attack. The product I found was called Lifeboat and it provided a way to get the information off your dying computer. Now, Lifeboat has a new version and a new name. Lifeboat is now Selkie Data Rescue and I want to tell you about it.

The Complete Solution - Selkie Data Rescue!

Selkie Data Rescue, by TugboatEnterprises, Ltd., is a slick product that can help youif your computer starts to die. The thing I love about Selkie DataRescue is that it's so easy-to-use. Even a novice computer user can recover their data from a failing computer with Selkie DataRescue. That's important. No matter how good a product is, it's useless if you can't figure out how to use it. A 10 year old child could use Selkie Data Rescue.

You may be asking, "How does it work?" Well, it's really very simple. The program creates a bootable CD which gives you access to your computer. Once the CD boots Selkie Data Rescue walks you right through saving your data. No degree in computer science needed,believe me. The program lets you pick another computer on your network and then you can begin to move your important files off of the failing machine. I want to stress a key point:

Selkie Data Rescue can save your files even if the operating system has failed!

The reason that's key is because if you can't access the computer it doesn't matter how many backups you have. I learned about SelkieData Rescue when my newcomputer became infected with a rootkit. This was the first time any computer of mine had been infected with anything in over 25 years. I couldn't access my back up drives and the computer was acting crazy. Still, I had some important files on the machine that I had to get off.

I searched on the Internet and the only solution I found wasSelkie Data Rescue. I downloaded it, created the Selkie DataRescue CD, booted to the CD, and within a very short time I'd saved all the files I needed. Selkie Data Rescue saved me hours of work.

Summing It Up!

Selkie Data Rescue, by Tugboat Enterprises, Ltd. is, in my opinion, a program that should be included with every computer. You get disks to help you reinstall Windows, disks to reinstall the programs that came with the computer, why not a program that can save what's most important? Your data!

There are so many things that can cause your computer to crash. Power outages, viruses, rootkits, a failing hard drive, a burned out fan, and more. Sometimes the biggest problem is the ability to access the computer. Selkie Data Rescue eliminates that problem. It gives you nearly instant access to your machine and to your network. You don't even need any additional software because the downloadable package burns a CD for you.

So much of our lives today reside on our computers. Photos of family and friends. Documents, music, videos, and more. Things that we may not be able to replace. Whether you use your computer at home or in a business setting, the possibility of a crash is always there.

When I had a crash I couldn't access my backups, I couldn't access the operating system. Fortunately, I found a "Selkie Data Rescue" and it's become what I consider to be a true, Must Have Application! I'm also awarding it the Tucows Editor's Choice Award for excellence.

To me Selkie Data Rescue is one of those things that you have to have. Like fire insurance or car insurance. Don't wait until you have the crash, act now! Download Selkie Data Rescue and be prepared if disaster strikes.

If you have a crash, make sure you have Selkie Data Rescue!
