    Thumbs up A good Windows rescuing distro


    I found Mepis 6.0 DVD an excellent tool for rescuing datas from a crashed Windows system. Works great with NTFS and USB. No manual mounting needed. This is the number one !

    My favourites are SystemRescueCD and gparted. They contain many tools for partition management and system rescue but they are very lightweight when compared to a full live cd like Mepis or Knoppix.

    i agree with daark.child. Latest version of GParted has ntfs-3g package and you can write in NTFS partitions. very easy to rescue anything

    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    gParted - can I mount partitions in the terminal/console while using gParted? I tells me 'read only filesystem.' knoppix and puppy don't have this problem. Am i doing something wrong?

    ps - how do i download Mepis USB OS? Can't find DL link ...

    You can do anything in gparted that you can do in other distros. If partitions are mounted read only, you can unmount them and then mount them read and write. Read the manual for the mount command to find out more info.
