Build 310: winpass fixed and Intel E1000 family nics support
Trinity Rescue Kit or TRK is a free live Linux distribution that aims specifically at recovery and repair operations on Windows machines, and is equally usable for Linux recovery issues, localy or over the network. It comes with a bunch of usefull scripts that automate tasks a lot.
Boot TRK in three different ways:
- as a bootable CD which you can burn yourself from a downloadable isofile
- from a USB stick/disk (optionally also a fixed disk), installable from Windows or from the bootable TRK cd
- from network over PXE, which requires some modifications on your local network.
Here 's a sumup of some of the most important features:
- easily reset passwords in Windows (NT/2k/XP/Vista) / Linux and related tasks
- 4 different virusscan products integrated in a single uniform commandline with online update capability
- full ntfs write support thanks to ntfs-3g (all other drivers included as well)
- clone filesystems (incl. NTFS) over the network
- wide range of hardware support (kernel 2.6.23.x and recent kudzu hwdata)
- easy script to find all local filesystems
- self update capability to include and update all virusscanners
- full proxyserver support.
- run a samba fileserver (windows like filesharing)
- run a ssh server
- recovery and undeletion of files with utilities and procedures
- recovery of lost partitions
- evacuation of dying disks
- UTF-8 international character support.
- elaborated documentation
TRK is a complete commandline based distribution, apart from a few tools like qtparted, links, partition image and midnight commander.
As an example I used it to backup windows & GNU/Linux filesystems, clone disks & partitions (USB2 & SSH based), recover a damaged RAID + LVM partitioned OS, and used Winpass to recover a lost Windows XP Administrator password.
