  • This project is invaluable to me. I've used it to clone the partitions on one drive to another, to fix a broken grub boot, and to run zerofree on my Virtualbox VM partitions so that I can compact them.

  • great software to restore a system on a different filesystem/hard disk using tools like Disk Archive - dar

  • A tool that any decent systems administrator should have.

  • great

  • 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...

  • Outstanding workhorse, must-have in the hands of any administrator

  • Superb collections to access any computer system by booting from CD or USB Drive. When a system is in trouble boot using systemrescuecd and fix it.

  • First I apologize for my poor English (I'm from Italy) Well, though support and documentation are not updated nor perfect, I think System Rescue CD is a great tool, perhaps the best among the ones I keep in my multiboot USB. It's not for beginners, since it requires some Linux and PC rescue knowledge, but this is not a defect on my opinion. It's a pity it doesn't have ClamAV anymore (once it had) and that it's not fully updated in it's floppy section. I was only able to delete supergrub disk image and copy a newer version. System Rescue CD is a complete tool (if it had an AV tool it would be enough to manage a PC) anyway and I think any system administrator and PC technician should have it in their bag. The only tool that can be compared to SysRescueCD is Caine: it's a forensic tool but i can be used like a rescue CD. But Caine is very large (more than 3Gb ISO) and it's not updated like SysRescueCD. SysRescueCD can do a lot of things you can do with any distro, but it has a different structure that makes it unique: not just a simple distro with a lot of tool... Sysrescue CD can recover data (also on damaged partition), clone partition, image, securely wipe data, check disks... and meny, meny other things. SysRescueCD is also the tool you want if you have to learn Linux: it teaches you how to manage partition, how to use command line etc... My final judgment is EXCELLENT!
