Now it is time to release the new Rescue CD for which we put out the beta some time ago. We decided to update the version number to 3.11 since we added a couple of useful utilities to the CD image. Otherwise this is the same version as is available on our Internet Security 2010 installation CD.
The new utilities on the CD are:
* PhotoRec is a tool that can be used to recover data that has been accidentally deleted or lost due to a corrupted file system on a disk.
* TestDisk is another data recovery tool that can be used to recover a lost partition, for example.
* smartmontools contain utilities that can be used to inspect S.M.A.R.T. values of hard disks. By analyzing these numbers you may get a hint if your hard disk is starting to show signs of breaking down. Check the Documentation page for more information and tutorials on how to use the tools.
Note: F-Secure does not provide any support for using the above mentioned utilities and the best resource for help on using them can probably be found from their Wiki pages.
