SafeClean quickly removes Internet history files, caches, bookmarks, email, and conversation logs that can allow others to find out what you have been doing on the Internet, possibly revealing personal and potentially compromising information. It allows you to permanently destroy information about your Web browsing activities, private email messages, and even information on your use of Instant Messenger programs. It is easy to use, and provides a one-click method to protect your Internet privacy. For power users, SafeClean is completely configurable so that you can decide which types of information or which Internet applications you wish to clean for privacy purposes.
INSERT (the Inside Security Rescue Toolkit) aims to be a multi-functional, multi-purpose disaster recovery and network analysis system. It boots from a credit card-sized CD-ROM and is basically a stripped-down version of Knoppix. It features good hardware detection, fluxbox, emelfm, links-hacked, ssh, tcpdump, nmap, chntpwd, and much more. It provides full read-write support for NTFS partitions (using ntfs-3g), and the ClamAV virus scanner (including a fairly recent signature database and a GUI). It provides partition handling with gParted and also has a network boot facility.
Local Area Security Knoppix is a 'Live CD' distribution based on Knoppix but with a strong emphasis on security tools and small footprint. There are two different versions of L.A.S. Linux to fit two specific size requirements. There is a 185 MB version and a 210 MB version to fit on MiniCDs of the same size.
Paragon Drive Backup is a universal backup. It creates images of any partitions of the whole hard disk and places them on CD, DVD, or another partition or disk. It includes a bootable CD and an "undelete partition" function. It can be used to repartition, clone, or upgrade hard disk. It also includes Image Explorer, a tool to explore your backup images and restore only part of one of them. All versions of NTFS are supported, and fast processing is provided for FAT 16/32, NTFS, EXT2/3fs, and ReiserFs.
dd_rhelp allows users to retrieve, quickly and easily, recoverable data from any device with bad sectors. It will copy it using dd_rescue in all the appropriate ways (reverse copy, setting start and stop offset accordingly to previously rescued data) to recover the maximum data possible before spending time on bad sectors. It is straightforward to use, supports ctrl-c at anytime, can resume a job (or standalone dd_rescue job) by parsing the dd_rescue logs, and displays a nice ASCII bar showing rescue progress.
dd_rescue copies data from one file or block device to another. It is intended for error recovery, so by default, it doesn't abort on errors and doesn't truncate the output file. It uses large block sizes to quicken the copying, but falls back to small blocks upon encountering errors. It produces reports that allow you to keep track of bad blocks. dd_rescue features a number of optimizations, such as sparse block detection, preallocation, and Linux zerocopy (splice). It supports data protection by (multi-pass) overwriting of files or partitions with good and fast random numbers.
