"Very, large file that doesn't live up to it's claims."

I'm afraid I have absolutely nothing positive to say about this so called rescue CD.


Extremely large even if it did do what it says it will do. I had many problems downloading file. I could not do it wireless period. Excellent signal, modern, fast equipment, it still glitched out every time. Hardwired had problems too-but of course only after 200+ mb into download. Finally got it by dedicating it, apparently it wanted my computer all to itself. I tried it on an old compac with a corrupted mbr, an easy fix without even needing a rescue disk. It didn't work! It wouldn't boot the computer. Some simple rescue programs that come with sys. utilities can do simple rescues. I got rid of it, then bound and determined, I tried it again--same, didn't work.


I wasted a lot of time and a couple of blank disks and got nothing but some hair pulling frustration. Don't bother with this gigantic file.
