SystemRescueCd 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 hard disk partitions. It comes with a lot of linux software such as system tools (parted, partimage, fstools, ...) and basic tools (editors, midnight commander, network tools).
It can be used for both Linux and windows computers, and on desktops as well as servers. This rescue system requires no installation as it can be booted from a CD/DVD drive or USB stick, but it can be installed on the hard disk if you wish. The kernel supports all important file systems (ext2/ext3/ext4, reiserfs, btrfs, xfs, jfs, vfat, ntfs), as well as network filesystems (samba and nfs).
Finally a turning point in System Rescue CD development!
The 6.0.0 version is stunning and shows that this project is alive and the SysRescCD is still one of the best (its my favorite) admin tools around.
Once SystemRescueCd saved me on USB, I pray for this project.
Great system with many powerful tools. For best use you must of course know or read up on the tools. Good documentation and tutorials exist on the website (and tools websites and rest of internet... of course)
great software to restore a system on a different filesystem/hard disk using tools like Disk Archive
The best bootable Gentoo Linux there is. Works perfectly fine with both legacy BIOS and UEFI.
Whenever I have to maintain/install a machine, sysresccd on USB is my choice.
... for years now...
system rescue cd has saved me so many times
