  14. The software I purchased is for 64 bit my computer can only load 32 bit software What can I do?

    Here 32-bit means your CPU is 32-bit, not your OS type; if your CPU supports 64-bit, we’ll think your computer as 64-bit.
    In addition, our software supports both 32-bit & 64-bit. The difference is: for 32-bit computers, you need download an program from our website to make bootable media; while 64-bit computers don’t have such limitation. We recommend you to order a "Bootable Rescue Disc", it supports both 32-bit and 64-bit systesm.

  15. I have a laptop that will not boot. Will any of your products help me boot and recover from whatever it is that is causing the issue, assuming it is not a hardware issue?

    I don’t think there is a secure way to fix an unbootable system. We suggest you to first, copy important files from hard drive and then use your factory restoration to restore your system back to original state (if your laptop is a software failure). FarStone Total Backup Recovery software allow you to create a rescue bootable DVD/USB. You need to use another PC to create it. Then use the DVD/USB to boot your crashed laptop. It will boot into FarStone Recovery Manager, click “Explore” to browser hard drive. Copy your personal files to a USB flash. We recommend you to order a "Bootable Rescue Disc", it supports both 32-bit and 64-bit systesm.

  16. What exactly is a VirtualDrive?

    It is a CD emulation device that emulates the functionality of a CD/DVD-ROM drive, and appears as a drive letter in Windows Explorer. A virtual drive runs Virtual CDs (or VCDs) at faster speeds than a physical disc.

  17. Why is the time for building protected CDs much longer than building other sorts of CDs?

    To avoid the long wait, you must build protected CDs with intelligent extraction, otherwise it will take longer to complete, or the VCD will be unreadable after it is complete. Also, at the beginning of the building, VirtualDrive slows down the speed while reading data from a protected area on the CD (laserlock, safedisk, securom), so the time estimated to finish will be prolonged. The VirtualDrive will speed up once it is finished building the protected area, and the time remaining will be reduced as well
