Software recovery services

If a thief takes your laptop, tracking and recovery software can help you get it back. Absolute Software's Lojack for Laptops, Brigadoon's PC PhoneHome, Inspice's Inspice Trace, XTool's Laptop Tracker, and zTrace Technologies' zTrace Gold are tracking utilities that connect periodically to a central server. When such a utility does so, the associated service can trace your laptop's location on the Internet and summon the local police to recover it. Absolute Software claims that Lojack for Laptops can survive on a laptop even if the thief successfully reinstalls the operating system, reformats the hard drive, or (in some laptop models) swaps out the hard drive.
