My Windows AutoRun just un-disabled itself

As I've written in another article - since I used clamav from SRCD 1.3.3 and again from 1.3.4 (and did some other things), my Windows PC is misbehaving and I only hope that isn't because of SRCD or clamav. Specifically, I had disabled AutoRun, using some Windows Updates and some registry entries. Bu...

Re: graphical frontend to clamscan (clamav)

For up-to-date protection on a non-internet-connected PC, apparently you can download new virus data files from http://www.clamav.org/download/cvd , and you could put those on a USB stick along with shell scripts for your preferred command line switches, including probably the switches to use the da...

Re: Feature Request - eject boot disk before restarting

I don't fully follow this, but would this issue be addressed by allowing "eject" as another command at the "boot" prompt?

Come to think, isn't there one already at "boot" to "reboot from the hard disc instead of this CD"?

Re: Partimage in 1.3.3 - invalid compression level, donation

I have found here http://www.partimage.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=213 a discussion that seems to say it's more reliable to split archive files with less than 2 GB size per file. I've been using 650 MB anyway, but anything that fits nicely on both CDs and DVDs will do - although I send the image to h...

Re: Keeping the CD alive

How about typing "rescuecd docache" at the boot prompt? Then the CD is copied into RAM (right?) during boot, then not used again. I feel it should eject or something then. Mine doesn't. But I am allowed to run xfburn. I thought you were saying that "SystemRescueCD keeps alive as a useful format the ...

Re: New Motherboard Installed Linux not booting

Google for that message finds a hint that the hard disk physical connections - power and data - should be checked. What that really means is, switch off the PC, ground yourself, and unplug and then re-plug each connector one by one. Or the cable itself could be faulty. Or... can you pull the RAM out...

A problem reported with GParted, Parted 1.9.0 & newer kernel

Apparently the Linux live CD of GParted 0.4.8 has being doing bad things to some people's disk partitioning, but not necessarily due to GParted itself. I suppose the issue may also affect the SystemRescueCD. https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=601574 Curtis Gedak writes: "The crux of the prob...

Re: Data recovery - photorec vs. testdisk vs. ddrescue?

Well, a little basic information about bad sectors: as far as I know, those are detected when a checksum stored on the hard disk after each 512 bytes of data does not apparently match the data. So a file that has one bad sector in it may have up to 512 data bytes converted to nonsense. Sometimes tha...
