Super Grub Disk is a bootable floppy or CDROM that is oriented towards system rescue, specifically for repairing the booting process. Super Grub Disk is simply a Grub Disk with a lot of useful menus. It can activate partitions, boot partitions, boot MBRs, boot your former OS (Linux or another one) by loading menu.lst from your hard disk, automatically restore Grub on your MBR, swap hard disks in the BIOS, and boot from any available disk device. It has multi-language support, and allows you to change the keyboard layout of your shell.
footprint is a tool that makes it easier to create and manage kickstart files. It allows you to define systems, create profiles for systems, and macros per distribution. It can create kickstart files on the fly, make custom initrd (ramdisks), create custom bootfloppies, and can manage your DHCP and PXE configuration.
anyfs-tools allows you to recover and convert filesystems while using minimal extra disk space. Unlike other recovery tools, anyfs-tools doesn't copy all the files found on other disks (or partitions), but only saves information about the location of the file blocks to an external inode table. After recovery, a user may mount the damaged filesystem with anyfs and the external inode table and then interact with all recovered files with any program.
Stellar Phoenix Macintosh recovers data from damaged, deleted, corrupted volumes, from disk crashes, and even from initialized disks. It supports HFS and HFS+ file system, and is compatible with both Mac OS X and Mac OS 9.x. An exhaustive scan of the drive is performed to locate lost partitions. All data found in the lost partition is then presented in a tree structure such that it can be copied to a working volume.
Cleversafe is a storage software solution that offers extremely high reliability and security. Cleversafe uses fast information dispersal algorithms to store small slices of data in multiple, disparate locations. Each slice is individually unusable, yet any majority of the slices can perfectly recreate all of the original data. A large dispersed storage grid with 11 or more storage locations can remain fully operational even if up to any 5 of the storage nodes are not operational.
giis (gET iT i sAY) is a file recovery tool for Ext2/Ext3 filesystems. Once installed, current files and newly created files can be recovered. It allows users to recover all deleted files, recover files owned by a specific user, dump data from old file locations, and recover files of a specific type, such as text or PNG. A forensic analyzer is also provided to assist users during recovery.
