I am struggling to remember the name of a boot CD I have since lost the disc for. It was great for cloning discs, and resetting passwords.

It's NOT the UBCD4Win, and it defos wasn't Knoppix.

I have checked the LiveCD list and can't seem to find it there by doing a 'sort by'.

I seem to remember it was called something like GS Tools but that might be more or less completely wrong. It had an unusual but memorable name.

Makes me wonder how I came across it in the first place!

The only one I can think of is Hiren's boot CD It contains several cloning and password resetting tools and a Linux and Mini Windows XP bootable. It's the only one I use.

That doesn't look like a boot CD to me – Ivo Flipse Feb 9 '11 at 23:44
