Operation Data Recovery Launched for Katrina Victims

To Help Out With Data Decovery After the Devastation of Hurricane Katrina

Tugboat Enterprises, the maker of the new data rescue product Lifeboat, is offering complimentary Lifeboat Data Rescue programs and technical support for the program to individuals and companies whose computers were hit by Hurricane Katrina. The offer is extended as a part of corporate goodwill toward individuals and companies who are most affected. Operation Data Recovery is valid for anyone living in Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee or South Carolina.

"When people are affected by this kind of natural disaster, it's important that we pull together. Hurricane Katrina caused enormous damage to individuals and companies who are now struggling to recover everything, including their data," said Tugboat Enterprises CEO Judi Tyabji Wilson, "We want to do what we can as part of the global community of business."

"People have lost their homes and so much more," says James Mogan, Chief Software Architect, "Data recovery can add thousands of dollars to their bills and take weeks. We want to help people and businesses get back on their feet as fast as possible."

Lifeboat Data Rescue retails for $99.99 and provides almost instant access to files on a crashed computer. If the laptop or PC is malfunctioning, Lifeboat can boot up to bypass the malfunctioning software to provide networked access to move files safely, without opening up the hard drive of the affected computer. It works whether the problem is a virus, a worm, the blue screen of death, or other software issues.

Operation Data Recovery will run from August 30, 2005 until Friday, September 16th at 6 p.m. ET.

Companies or individuals who have lost data on their computers or who need to move files from malfunctioning Windows applications can contact Tugboat Enterprises Ltd either through their Web site www.TugboatEnterprises.com or toll-free at 1-888-688-9199. They can also fax in an order to 604-487-4255 (fax).

The regional Distributor of Lifeboat Data Rescue is Testrack, with a head office in Florida. Rich Muro, President of TestRack, is available to answer questions at 941-720-0673. www.TestRack.com

Lifeboat is the first of four new products being launched by the high tech start-up company Tugboat Enterprises, out of British Columbia, Canada. Lifeboat has helped customers recover data quickly and inexpensively since its launch in May 2005.
