    OK the long range repair thread got me thinking [a rare event in itself]

    what would make the perfect utility disk to carry around on call outs etc?
    I guess it must be CD rather than DVD [just in case the client doesn't have
    a DVD drive]

    on mine:

    Spyware removal tool
    anti virus s/w
    bootdisk files
    discover it [a small free utility for revealing windows passwords -
    http://lastbit.com/discoverit/default.asp ]
    Driver magician
    winzip/winrar

    Those get me out of most situations....
    But, what else?

    From the site mentioned:
    "Unfortunately current version does not work under Windows 2000. Next
    version will support Windows 2000."

    not sure about NT/xp NTFS
    download it and try it?

    I have used Restoration (v2.5.14) in the past to recover files for people.
    It runs from a floppy so no install is involved (windows exe). It works best
    if recovering small numbers of files. It is Freeware and can be found at
    WebAttack.com.

    does this work on workstation logon passwords ?
    can it uncover the administrator password for example ?

    I find 'WhoAmI' very useful with verifying Internet connectivity and it's
    another program that doesn't need to be installed - available from
    www.mycooltools.com
