Daring Rescue: A Toolkit for Saving the Day! - This 8-Bit Life
Daring Rescue is a personal project born out of a work assignment to make and end-all, be-all, beat-all toolkit for recovering and repairing computers. I decided that a lot of the work I had done (though not all of it for legal reasons) should be shared with others.
**UPDATE: While I wait for the sourceforge server to propagate I have put up an image of Daring Rescue here:
All tools included are freely available online, I have simply done the work of combining them for you into one maintained image that can be easily copied over to a 16GB thumbdrive. I chose this size because it is relatively inexpensive, provides enough space for all the tools I wanted to include, and leaves a bit of room to grow.
I will be updating the image with new tools, distro releases, and making changes to the bootloaders as I develop the toolkit. I am open to suggestions for tools to include/remove.
You can grab the image from my SourceForge page here and write it to a thumbdrive using the dd command in Linux or an applicable Windows program.
**Remeber that you need at least a 16GB thumbdrive to write this to.
