Reduced Support Costs and Downtime

End users can easily recover and upgrade systems, eliminating the need to dispatch a technician or ship replacement equipment to the field. Keeping your Windows IoT software up to date reduces security risks.

Simple Imaging and Deployment Solution

Once your device image is built, you can duplicate and deploy as you prepare for manufacturing.

Easy to Use

An intuitive and instructive GUI makes SquareOne simple for developers and non-technical end users.

Reduced Development Risk

You can ship a recovery solution with your product with no additional development time, risk, or cost. White-labeling the solution to bundle with your product is an option.


SquareOne is designed for the following types of devices:

  • Point of service kiosks
  • POS systems
  • Digital signage
  • Handheld terminals
  • Personal computers
  • Other freestanding digital devices


  • Captures an exact copy of an image onto a recovery partition, external media, or the cloud.
  • Deploys captured image stored on removeable media onto a system.
  • Restores a system from the image located on a hidden recovery partition.
  • While out in the field, you can re-capture the recovery image based on the current state of a system and restore in the hidden partition for later use.
  • White-label branding options are available, including rebranding and changing logo and background images.

How to Use It

SquareOne lets you capture your operating system image and then deploy it in the way that works best for your embedded device product.

Partition Recovery

Create a hidden recovery partition on the drive of the embedded device and install your recovery software and recovery image. If there’s OS corruption or a system failure, you can restore the image or upgrade the OS from the hidden partition without USB.

External Media Recovery

If your company prefers external media recovery and upgrade in the field, SquareOne lets you deploy the captured recovery image from an external media device, including USB, CD, or DVD.

Cloud-based Upgrade

With an optional Windows agent, SquareOne enables remote updating of the hidden recovery image received by Azure or by third-party device management software through a file drop. This allows the embedded device to be restored to a new system image or upgraded to a new version of Windows.

Automated Recovery

SquareOne gives you the option to perform a recovery, either remote or local, with a single touch. Get completely automated operating system recovery or upgrade without any user interaction.
