Instant USB Boot Protection

 

 

Start Your PC Directly from Your Backup Drive!

Instant USB Boot is protection against a hard drive crashes, viruses, and other corruptions that won't allow you to start or run your PC properly. If any of these problems occur, you can start your entire system directly from the backup drive.

 

 

 

You can do this at any time by restarting your system and pressing the boot menu hot key for your system (see below). If your hard drive has crashed, most PCs will start from your backup drive automatically.

Simple One-Click Restore Process

When you start from your backup drive, System Reflection will inform you with a popup message that you can initiate a restore process, or continue to work from your backup drive at your leisure.

 

 

 

Once a restore is initiated, your system, along with any changes made while the backup drive was booted, will be restored to your original hard drive. If necessary, you can install and restore to a new drive.
