This distribution has a version for 32 and another for 64 bits so that any user can use it on their systems regardless of the architecture of their computer. With only 454MB it can be used in Live-USB mode from a USB memory of 512MB or higher or it can also be burned to a CD to boot in Live-CD mode on computers that do not support booting from USB.
SystenRescueCd comes with a large number of tools diagnostic and repair, for example:
- Testdisk (to recover partitions)
- PhotoRec (to recover deleted files)
- Partimage (to create disk and partition images)
- Gparted (to manage partitions)
- Grub (to recover the boot of a Linux system if, for example, Windows has replaced it)
- Tool to erase a hard drive safely
- Support for NTFS partitions
- Editors and programming IDEs
- Disc burner
- Network diagnostic tools
- Clam Antivirus
Along with all the previous tools (it includes many more), SystemRescueCd comes by default with an Xfce desktop installed and configured to work without problems on computers with little graphics or memory capacity.
Users who have previously used this distribution will not find practically nothing new in version 4.0 of SystemRescueCd. The changes that the developers have released in this update have focused on a new kernel, bug fixes and updating the different tools to the new versions available, such as Gparted, one of the best partition managers out there.
By default the distribution loads in text mode. Users who want to access the desktop must run the command startx and it will load the Xfce interface.
SystemRescueCd is a very useful tool to recover any system, hard disk or to be able to access in Live mode (without installing anything) to a computer that, due to any error in the hard disks, does not start and thus try to access the files.
