Hello everyone,

After having fixed/recovered computers (mostly windows) of friends and families, I have slowly put together my "computer recover kit" consisting of a couple of floppies and CD-ROMS. I am curious what people are using in their recovery kits and have recommendations for additions to my kit. Here are it's rough current contents:

1) Bootable DOS floppy with generic CD-ROM support
2) Ultimate Boot CD [homepage]
3) Bart's PE Bootable Windows XP environment
4) QTParted
5) Kubuntu/Ubuntu live/install CD-ROM (to see if they want to switch to Linux :^)
6) CD-ROM of basic application installs (anti-virus, firewall, 7-zip, etc.)

Any additions/suggestions/replacements would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Tom

I keep my re-installation discs handy (don't have Win7 one, it didn't come with my laptop, therefor I could not reformat when I had a virus) , my 5 GB flash drive handy with all of our computers' drivers handy, and I always have a spare $50 lying around if we need new antivirus. XD.
