View Full Version : partition recovery

I have seen a live cd distro that works like norton gost before but you have to manualy compile the cd. the reson why I don't like norton gost is that it recently corupted my best freinds partition table.
What I am wanting to build is a live cd that boots up to a ram disk and burns the chosen partition to cd or dvd. that dvd or set of dvds can then be booted from and unpack that partition onto the chosen disk.

what I am doing is testing software I write I write some (windows) software and test it after a few weeks the computer don't work. so I want to pop in a dvd reboot and start over

it would be nice if the program when compiling these live cds filled up the ram with a block of the partition tarballed it and saved it to cd so it would take less space.

does this already exist or can anyone give me any pointers on how to make a distro with this functionality?

I know c# and a little c++ if i need to actualy make a distro.
