It’s An Emergency – Call BartPE

I found myself needing to ghost over a PC the first day on the job at a new company.

Come to find out, that they didn’t have a ghost server or any knowledge of ghost. Not wanting to spend too much time on this little project, I remembered using Bart PE to boot systems and recover data off of them. After tracking it down from a Google search, I proceeded to build my own CD and boot to it. Within no time I was ghosting over and had the entire job complete before I could have even tracked down an installation of ghost and setup the server and so on. The best part is that there are so many built in functions on the PE CD that I haven’t even seen them all or used them all. But having them close by helps.
