Project Description

SystemRescue is a Linux system rescue disk available as a bootable DVD-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 software such as disk management tools (parted, fsarchiver, filesystem tools, ...), network administration programs and simple text editors . 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 DVD drive, and USB stick, or from the network using PXE. But it can be installed on the hard disk if you wish. It comes with up to date kernels to provide support for recent hardware and also for all important file systems (ext4, xfs, btrfs, ntfs, reiserfs, vfat), as well as network filesystems (cifs and nfs).

I would give only one star, but the site changed this and i can't edit the rating ============================================================ I use this for over 10 years. It was the best system over the years and often it was the saving angel for me. The system were very flexible and stabil. But all the ongoing versions (over 5.3.x) are the biggest bullshit under the sun. a Rescue-system with arch-Linux and systemd, what did they smoke...
the old versions are available the rating where automatic changed to three stars, this is a fake site!
all versions over 5.3 are completely useless for a admin
