SystemRescueCd

Last Update: 2017-04-23 10:02 UTC


SystemRescueCd is a Gentoo-based Linux system on a bootable CD-ROM or USB drive, designed for repairing a system and data after a crash. It also aims to provide an easy way to carry out administration tasks on a computer, such as creating and editing hard disk partitions. It contains many useful system utilities (GNU Parted, PartImage, FSTools) and some basic ones (editors, Midnight Commander, network tools). It aims to be very easy to use. The kernel of the system supports all of today's most important file systems, including ext2, ext3, ext4, ReiserFS, Reiser4FS, btrfs, XFS, JFS, VFAT, NTFS, ISO9660, as well as network file systems, such as Samba and NFS.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 114 (96), 6 months: 113 (104), 3 months: 106 (126), 4 weeks: 78 (165), 1 week: 43 (281)

I'm using RescueCd to make ntfs partition backup with little script.
Since I put it on a usb key, it's even better.

I use it. I like it. I always try to a current version on a usb stick though it can be a bit knarly to install it there. It is handy when one's linux 'daring do' gets away from you and there is a crash and burn situation. Been there.
