Redo Rescue

Last Update: 2022-12-02 01:54 UTC


Redo Rescue is an Ubuntu-based live CD featuring backup, restore and disaster recovery software. It centres around an easy-to-use graphical program for running bare-metal backup and recovery on hard disk partitions, as well as on external hard drives and network shares. The CD also includes several popular data recovery programs and a web browser. The distribution, originally called Redo Backup & Recovery, went on hiatus after a release in late 2012, but was eventually resurrected in 2020 by the Redo Rescue project.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 241 (29), 6 months: 241 (29), 3 months: 229 (30), 4 weeks: 231 (32), 1 week: 234 (32)

Easy to use and work as advertised. Other backup systems have too many confusing options for someone like my grand parents to navigate. Redo Rescue is a snap even for beginner and can put everything back quickly if there is a problem.

I also like that the cd has built in tools like gParted for making partition changes after the backup is restored, a web browser, and more. Even though it is not intended to be a live cd desktop operating system it has a lot of the same features of a good live cd linux distrobution.

I like what this project does, and the updates are great. However, here we are a year after the 3.0 version and nothing has changed other than the underlying Debian OS. It doesn't exactly give me the warm fuzzy feeling, especially since the developer has disappeared with total radio silence once before.

At this point, I'm going to stick with CloneZilla and RescueZilla. They both get more frequent releases and have been proven to work well for my needs.

1) This little gem creates a full snapshot of your existing system with high compression and super fast!
2) You need 2 USB drives - one small drive with boot ISO and one larger one to store the images.
3) It automatically copies both the IFE (grub/FAT) partition and the main EXT4 partition into a single file
4) It trims the fat - only data is copied. My 256Gb NVme drive with Debian 11 + the usual apps was compressed to 9.2Gb - took about 2-3 minutes
5) It can restore the snapshot of a 256Gb drive on a larger drive e.g. 500Gb and leaves the spare space you can format for extra data.
6) Nice, easy to understand and navigate GUI

I was using it to create consecutive snapshots of my tweaked-out Sparky Linux 6.0

Love it ! 10/10
