SystemRescueCd makes life much easier, I use it often for many tasks. Thanks!
TrueCrypt support is really missing. The author suggests migrating away from TrueCrypt, but how, without the tool? The whole disk is near undocumented (a simple text file would do, but there is none). The shell defaults are strange and no help whatsoever. The most recent version fails to come up properly if the system is not cold booted, and if there is a LVM drive present that is not in perfect state, the boot scripts will stall: No help if you want to do a repair. Concerning Windows tools, there is near nothing to speak of. Some of the backup tools are outdated or critically buggy. The project chief doesn't answer requests, obviously he doesn't care. I cannot recommend this disk. (updated May 2015)
Still having trouble using SysRescue CD v4.9.5 and even earlier 4.4.0 booting an old AMD K6 1Ghz 32 bit machine. Tried boot option edd=off still hangs right after "Loading initram.igz" Funny a much older version of SysResCD v 1.58 seems to work fine Why is this ? Thanks
Please add VeraCrypt to the featured software! Writing this here as apparently no new registrations are allowed in the forum. Also could you please open a discussion board here (especially if you have closed forums)?
I REALLY like SystemRescue, but prefer to pair it up with KNOPPIX on a USB drive. HOWEVER, I REALLY would like to see downloading access to the ISO be made available via TORRENT, as TORRENT is easier on servers and downloaders alike!
