    Someone should take over and update the wiki on this - damn good idea, this thread.

    For cloning software this was recommended recently:

    "OpenSource clone system (OCS) solution called Clonezilla with unicasting and multicasting!"

    are you volunteering? :)
    go for it if you want. i don't have time to do it.

    that post has not been updated since 2004 so yes, it really is so last decade. :)


    again, a wiki entry would be much better and easier to maintain than this thread.

    If you wish to help out another OCAU user by getting into their computer.

    www.teamviewer.com

    Get them to download TEAMVIEWERQS.exe, and you download the full download (doesn't need to be installed).

    They give you their ID and password, and you can log straight into their PC without a firewall and they can see what you are doing.

    It does time out but only after like an hour.

    VERY handy tool!

    I'm suprised no-one has added Hirens Boot CD
    http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
    Link is about 2/3 of the way down. Great CD, I prefer it to UBCD.

    EDIT: NVM I see Tristan has done it up just up there ^^.
    I completely agree with Acronis, great program quite frankly. Also possibly worth adding GetDataBack (for NTFS or FAT). I recovered 5.22TB off a 320gb IDE drive, including the last 3 formats of it.

    Rkill (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic308364.html) is also handy. It kills any active spyware/malware processes so that you can run your other Antivirus programs

    Great thread, but I couldn't find a good remailer program, doesn't need to be anonymus, just so I get my mail from my previous ISP to the current.

    Recently used MHDD/ to unlock ATA password locked drives from a decommissioned raid array, relevant commands from a boot floppy are unlock and dispwd, google for a list of ata master passwords.

    It's a bit of an obscure issue, but others may have use for a HD unlocking utility.

    • GMER is truely worth it's weight in gold. It's the only guaranteed way I currently have of removing rootkits lately, though it's not that user friendly :(

      link

    • AUTORUNS - I have no idea why MS don't just include this with Windows. It's a very easy to use tool for disabling annoying Malware that hide from the usual scanners (Malwarebytes, etc)

      link

    • HitmanPro - first 30 days are free which is good enough if you're in a bind. It's the last tool that I run on any malware cleanup job.

    Yumi - multiboot-usb-creator/

    "YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer), is the successor to our MultibootISOs. It can be used to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more."

    Guys I'd like to strip different media files (but all of them) from a complicated folder structure into one place. Anyone know a quick tool that could do this?

    I just don't want to loose a bunch of stuff because I didn't search for the right extension.

    Secondly I have some issues with a bunch of folders returning a no longer at that location error. Likely because I've copied from a dying hard drive. Any good tools that would sort this out for me? I can't delete the folders in windows. Scandisk doesn't identify a problem.

    I would sector clone the bad drive to another and then chkdsk /f it (the good one) - thatd really the best u can do short of tools like rstudio

    As for sorting media, sounds like u need to setup a post processor somewhat similar to the kind found in sickbeard

    Apologies if it was mentioned and I didn't see it
    But I would add Virtualbox for creating virtual machines

    Agree, I use that for cloning disks, either as a backup or to transfer to a new hard disk, then Gparted to expand the disk image to fill the new hard drive.

    On the infrequent need these days I still use Acronis, although I think it used to be a bit more intuitive in its younger days.

    Yeah for forty bucks acronis is pretty good, easy to ready bootable usb tools and supports 64 bit. I used to use clonezilla but got acronis after I needed a more user friendly clone method for my ide arcade images
