* Chat: Open the chat for asking help directly in Rescatux channel.
* Share log: After running an option you can share its log (the action registry that it has done) so that in the chat they can help you better. O better, even, you can help debug and fix Rescatux bugs on the fly.
* Share log on forum: Prepares a forum post alike text so that you can just copy and paste it in your favourite forum. Logs are nicely inserted into it with [CODE] symbols.

Rescatux has saved my bacon on several occasions. An outstanding and free gem. Thank you SourceForge for your support of Open Source software ;)
A great software! some 3 years ago, when i tried to install linux - ubuntu in my win vista - laptop, i messed up and couldnt load windows anymore - i lost access to all drives except thro linux, if i remember right.. Horrible thing in the middle of a struggle to submit a thesis, - the service person didnt know how to fix it, he wanted to format it - but rescatux saved me.. thank you :) - i created this account today when i suddenly saw rescatux on featured downloads- had to say its good, right :)
Thank you for your work.
