Been using Parted Magic for 9 years to transfer data from failing drives to working drives. Repaired data accidentally deleted. Discovered and removed malicious code from Microsoft boxes. Partitioned or repartitioned drives. Made bootable removable media images. Discovery of failing SMART drives. All with the ability to find information online concerning the above, with a web browser. All usage done loaded in memory or from partially loaded code. Running on the affected PC. I have no problem paying for Patrick Verner's work.
