What is SystemRescue?
SystemRescue is a Linux system rescue toolkit available as a bootable medium 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 Linux system utilities such as GParted, fsarchiver, filesystem tools and basic tools (editors, midnight commander, network tools). 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 CD/DVD drive or USB stick, but it can be installed on the hard disk if you wish. The kernel supports all important file systems (ext4, xfs, btrfs, vfat, ntfs), as well as network filesystems such as Samba and NFS.
Comments and Reviews
Said about SystemRescue as an alternative
Like Parted Magic, this is a Linux distribution packed with utilities. Some the same or similar. Critically missing, however, is Clonezilla. It includes a similar utility but that utility warns that its NTFS support is weak and not very trustworthy.
