Data Rescue PC 3 can create a bootable USB drive
07 Dec 2012
Today I helped a customer that wanted to use Data Rescue PC 3 to recover data from their Windows computer that was no longer booting from the hard drive. He was wondering if there was a way to create a bootable USB drive with Data Rescue PC 3 so he contacted support. I sent him the .ISO file that he could use to create the bootable USB keychain drive and guided him in setting it up.
Once he had the boot USB keychain drive set up, he was able to startup his computer using the Data Rescue PC 3 boot USB as the startup device. I guided him in starting a scan of his hard drive through the wizard to see if any files could be found by Data Rescue PC 3. He followed up with me later in the day to let me know that the scan was able to find his files and that he was in the process of recovering them. He was very happy that he was able to use Data Rescue PC 3 to recover his data even though he was unable to start his computer into Windows.
