System Rescue - My Favorite LiveCD 

,----[ Quote ]
| My favorite LiveCD is System Rescue CD. System Rescue is a 
| Linux system rescue disk available as a bootable CD-ROM or 
| USB stick for administrating or repairing your system and 
| data after a crash. It aims to provide an easy way to 
| carry out admin tasks on your computer, such as creating 
| and editing the partitions of the hard disk. It comes with 
| a lot of linux software such as system tools (parted, 
| partimage, fstools, ...) and basic tools (editors, 
| midnight commander, network tools). It requires no 
| installation since you just have to boot on the CD-ROM. It 
| can be used to perform admin tasks on both linux servers, 
| linux desktops or windows boxes. The kernel supports most 
| of the important file systems (ext2/ext3/ext4, reiserfs, 
| reiser4, btrfs, xfs, jfs, vfat, ntfs, iso9660), as well as 
| network filesystems (samba and nfs).



Linux System Rescue CD 1.1.5 updates for ext4

,----[ Quote ]
| There comes a time when for whatever reason a system (Linux or Windows) won't
| boot. It was during during one such emergency years ago that I discovered the
| System Rescue LiveLinux CD. System Rescue is a bootable Linux operating
| system that will show you what partitions are on a drive and enable you
| to 'fix' them.
| The latest version of System Rescue version 1.1.5 is out today and it
| includes a few notable improvements over its predecessors. The most important
| in my view is support for the ext4 Linux filesystem.  Version 1.1.5 includes
| a new Linux kernel with support for ext4 as well as including a version 0.4.2
| of the GParted partitioning software that includes support for ext4.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
