If you’re in the computer repair business then good valuable tools are nice to have around. Especially if you fit them all onto one little usb flash drive.
- CentOS x86_64 Minimal
- Clonezilla (Clone Hard Drives and SSDs)
- Dan’s Boot ‘n Nuke (Wipe out them pesky bits on the hard drive. :) )
- Gparted Live (Standalone Partition Editor)
- Hiren’s Boot CD
- Kali Linux (For the “hacker” in you. :P)
- Linux Mint or your distribution of choice.
- NTpasswd (Reset windows passwords)
- Ophcrack (Cracking simple passwords. Your mileage may vary.)
- Puppy Linux (A small but simple Linux Distribution)
- System Rescue CD
- TinyCore (Another small Linux Distribution)
- VMware ESXI (Could come in handy)
- Windows Defender Offline
The tool I used to stuff all this onto a flash drive is called YUMI. So many tools can be crammed onto a 32GB flash drive and have spaced left over. I suppose more can be added but I also have 4 different versions of Kali Linux and Linux Mint 32bit and 64bit versions, 2 editions each.
Bonus points if you make all those bootable over the network for say a small network of customer computers. :)
