Roxio's Award-Winning System Recovery Software Impacts Bottom Line By Reducing PC Downtime, Tech Support Costs, Data Loss

Milpitas, Calif., May 7, 2001 - Roxio, Inc. (Nasdaq:ROXI), The Digital Media Company and maker of the world's best-selling CD recording software, announced today the availability of GoBack 3 Deluxe. In addition to expanding its operating system support to include Windows 2000/NT, the latest version of the award-winning GoBack software delivers advanced PC recovery options to business and home computer users, providing significant time and technical support cost savings. GoBack 3 Deluxe is also available in a downloadable version.

"GoBack 3 Deluxe gives individuals the ability to instantly recover their data in the event of a system crash, virus attack, failed software installation or user error," states Tom Shea, Chief Operating Officer of Roxio. "The software's superior system recovery capabilities dramatically reduce computer downtime and allow business professionals, and home users alike, to take care of PC problems on their own. With GoBack, you don't have to know what went wrong, only when your computer was last working properly."

Ideal for Small Office/Home Office professionals, GoBack 3 Deluxe protects and can recover data on a PC lost, damaged, or corrupted by system failure and virus attacks, user error or bad software installations. Users are freed from the time-consuming and expensive task of reinstalling operating systems and software applications that fail for unknown reasons or recreating work files that become corrupted, suffer virus damage or are accidentally deleted or overwritten. Now business travelers have the added benefit of immediate system recovery and data restoration capabilities on the road, where technical support and traditional backup methods are not readily available.

Now it's easier than ever to obtain instant disaster recovery from common problems that plague users on a regular basis. The downloadable version of GoBack 3 Deluxe offers users all of the functionality of the original GoBack - Immediately - without having to make a trip to a retail chain or waiting for the product to arrive in the mail.

About GoBack 3 Deluxe

In addition to continuous system and data protection, GoBack 3 Deluxe has critically important new features, including:

  • Network installation, which makes it easy to protect all networked computers.
  • File rescue, which allows a user to easily recover files that were removed or returned to a previous state by the revert process.
  • Simplified drive revert, which allows a user to choose from clearly defined restore points of 10 minutes, 1 hour ago, 2 hours ago or the start of the day for several previous days.
  • Password Protection, which once enabled, places complete control in the hands of the system administrator and reserves key hard disk revert privileges for designated staff members.
  • Auto-revert, which circumvents potential problems on public access and shared PCs by automatically reverting the hard disk to a pre-defined "clean" state without user intervention.
