    Hi. Project is super helpful. I use Redo since 5 y but... Redo need UPDATE. - Image needs update wpa_supplicant because it;s not possible to connect wifi with WPA2 password. - Disk locks up after use "Drive Reset". It's set hardware password to hd but don't know what. - Redo app need to add backup verification ex. md5, sha1.

    I have problems using redo on my Dell Inspiron 7000Series, I start from the usb or cd software (I downloaded the new livecd) the program seems to start but then you charge me for the ubuntu prompt without opening the GUI. How do I proceed? Thank you

    Perfect simple software. But only in english. No translations available. And keyboard layout just in english too. Additionally there could be some features like saving&restoring single partitions to different partitions or restoring backups to drives with bigger size ... But for simple backup/restore Jobs of partitions it is great.

    I have to say, when booting into Redo, it's really nice. You get an easy wizard to configure the backup, and while you're waiting for it to finish you can browse the net, use the file manager, etc. It looks really nice too. Unfortunately, this was last updated in 2012, and it seems that the devs have given up on it. Note what people have said below; the forums are littered with people having restoration problems and there are no solutions. Seems I'll be moving over to Clonezilla. RIP Redo.

    this app is a failure... so much so that the sys-admins don't even support it.... the forums are riddled with "successful restore/recovery" that have ZERO data being written to disk... leaving an EMPTY hard drive with unknown partitions...... since the origin of this app this problem has surfaced, yet no response no help, nothing from sys-admin... app has turned out to be unsupported, and VERY VERY likely to fail at the only task it has to do --- restore your data as promised..... PASS THIS APP BY.... if you value your time, data & sanity....
