Version 9.10

Version 9.10 (Karmic Koala) of the very best Free-Libre Open-Source data recovery software toolkit based on Ubuntu is out.

This release of Ubuntu-Rescue-Remix features up-to-date versions of the most powerful free/libre open-source data recovery software including GNU ddrescue version 1.11, Photorec, LVM2, and GNU-Fdisk.

*** Download the live CD/USB ***

The live Remix provides a full shell environment. You can download it here:

ubuntu-rescue-remix-9-10-revision1.iso (2009/11/05)

This iso image is compatible with the excellent USB Startup Disk Creator that is included with Ubuntu since 9.04 (System - Administration - USB Startup Disk Creator). Use it to put the Rescue Remix along with a persistent home on any USB flash drive.

If you are a Windows user, you can create a bootable USB system with the Rescue Remix by using the instructions and tool provided by pendrivelinux.com. Thanks Lance!

*** Metapackage ***

The live environment has a very low minimum requirement due to the fact that there is no graphical interface (powerful command-line only). If you prefer to work in a graphical environment, a metapackage is available which will install all the data recovery and forensics tools onto your current Ubuntu system. To do so, add the following archive to your software channels:

Copy the line below and adding it to your system's software sources.

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/arzajac/ppa/ubuntu karmic main

Then authenticate this software source by running the following command:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys BDFD6D77

Then, install the "ubuntu-rescue-remix-tools" package.
