Rescatux is a GNU/Linux rescue CD that comes with Rescapp, a nice wizard that will guide you through your rescue tasks. It can restore Grub to the MBR update a Grub configuration, perform filesystem checks, fix a Windows MBR, and more. Features that can indirectly assist the rescue process include chat programs to let you reach human online help, a share log (automatic pastebin), and a share log that uses formatting appropriate for posting on a forum.

Release Notes: The system has been updated to the next Debian Stable Wheezy. Gparted was updated to 0.12.1, which includes the new option "Attempt data rescue". A Gpart package was added so that the Gparted attempted data rescue option works. It can also be used by expert users.
Release Notes: If you selected Rescatux autodetect at boot, it tried to load a 32-bit kernel when you had a 64-bit one and vice-versa. There was another bug that made the manual Rescatux 32-bit and Rescatux 64-bit options unusable; they just showed you kernel panic errors. These two major bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: The main UI has been redesigned, and some nice icons have been added. 64-bit systems are now detected, and the proper kernel is loaded. The documentation has been translated into Spanish, and screenshots have been added. Installing or updating GRUB hard disk ordering now works with numbers of disks other than two. RAID and LVM2 CLI support have been added. New options are available to change the GNU/Linux password and regenerate the sudoers file. Synaptic and Gparted 0.7 are now available. Beta options are now shown as "optional (BETA)". The sysLinux version now has AMD64 booting as the default. Super Grub2 Disk is now included.
Release Notes: Beta options are now shown as optional (BETA). The syslinux version has AMD64 boot as the default, so the Restore Grub option works in most cases. Copyright notices were added to the source code files.
Release Notes: This release completes the graphical documentation and the Spanish graphical documentation.
