Disaster recovery when a pc or server no longer starts
A blue screen usually means a lot of work for administrators. When things get really bad, there’s no other choice but to configure a new system setup. And this is where O&O BlueCon 19 comes in. O&O BlueCon 19 is at an administrator’s side during the course of a daily routine as well as whenever disaster strikes. Based on Windows PE, it offers a wide range of programs for, among other things, repairing systems, searching and correcting errors, restoring lost data, resetting passwords, and the list goes on. O&O BlueCon 19 is an administrator’s IT first aid kit for day to day use.
O&O BlueCon 19 starts all programs directly from a bootable medium (CD/DVD or USB stick) and can so avoid the risk of data loss caused by overwriting data on the computer, which might be the case with a new installation. Seamless integration of all O&O BlueCon components saves the user the time-consuming job of collecting individual programs.
O&O BlueCon 19 features a new option for using in virtual environments so that even Windows systems running in a computer center somewhere in the cloud can be booted natively and accessed completely. This allows access not only to the Windows system, but to all its data as well. The new version supports Windows 11 and can be started with all its integrated programs directly from a USB stick or from a network environment.

Start directly from bootable medium
All O&O BlueCon 19 programs and features can be run directly from the O&O BlueCon 19 bootable medium without any installation – even if Windows is defective or no longer able to start. Thanks to an intuitive user interface, the integrated tools are extremely easy to use and require little time for learning how to use them. The O&O BlueCon 19 bootable medium has also been optimized for Windows 11 and Server 2019.
Remove/uninstall updates that were installed by Windows
With this new function you can remove/uninstall updates that were installed by Windows. The O&O UpdateRemover offers much more than the in-built Windows function. This only shows and removes the “last update”, whereas the O&O UpdateRemover is more detailed with a full list of updates installed and available for removal. It is also still available even if the Windows rescue environment no longer starts!
Create a PXE Boot medium from BuildPE
In a Microsoft network environment, clients can now be started over a network – no DVD or USB stick is required. Using the PXE boot medium created within O&O BlueCon 19, customers can now boot a computer over their networks from a remote machine, rather than having to use a local medium such as a hard disk, CD, DVD or USB stick. The medium created in O&O BlueCon 19 can be held on a central server and then activated for certain computers when needed, without this boot medium having to be physically available. The PXE server required to do this (Windows Deployment Service) is available in a Microsoft Domain or can be installed.
One very special feature is the O&O DriverLoader which automatically recognizes all system components and loads the necessary drivers. If the driver for a particular hardware is missing, the user can quickly embed it into the running system so that he can then have complete access to this device.
Professional data restoration:
The new O&O DiskRecovery finds and reconstructs files that were accidentally deleted or lost as a result of software error. O&O DiskRecovery searches for lost data through every sector of the hard disk, memory card, or USB stick.
Easy hard disk management:
O&O PartitionManager will let you create, delete, extend and shrink partitions. It will also allow you to change the size of a system partition and rearrange files to save space on them.
Access a computer without an administrator password
The O&O BlueCon UserManager gives you access to all registered users. You can, for example, change forgotten passwords in just a few clicks so that a user can quickly login with a new password.
Permanently delete data
The user-friendly O&O SafeErase Wizard helps you delete sensitive data and entire drives so securely, it prevents the data from ever being recovered again. Not even with specialized software. Thanks to the five different deletion methods, data can be overwritten up to 35 times.
Backup data from defective Windows systems
Copy your data from defective systems onto external disks. You can access data on your system without having to overwrite it – this gives you the security of knowing that no data will be lost. By using the O&O BlueCon FileExplorer, you’ll be able to access all files and folders.
