Easy Backup, Recovery & Bare Metal Restore

Why Not Use…?


Many excellent solutions such as Acronis and Norton Ghost already exist. However, most backup tools cost money, only save data files (rather than the whole system), or come with restrictive licenses. Many are applications that are designed to run on a specific platform. While there are some open source alternatives, these programs are often far too complex for regular users, and most require knowledge of a command line, or ask too many difficult questions.

Easy Backup, Recovery & Bare Metal Restore



Redo Backup and Recovery is so simple that anyone can use it. It is the easiest, most complete disaster recovery solution available. It allows bare-meta restore.

More Features, Less Complex

Redo Backup has the most features coupled with the simplest, most user-friendly interface:

  • Easy graphical user interface boots from CD in less than a minute
  • No installation needed; runs from a CD-ROM or a USB stick
  • Saves and restores Windows and Linux machines
  • Automatically finds local network shares
  • Access your files even if you can’t log in
  • Recover deleted pictures, documents, and other files
  • Internet access with Firefox to download drivers
  • Live CD download size is only about 75MB

How Does it Work?

Most backup and restore programs require your system to be up and running in order to restore. But what if you cannot boot into Windows? What if you have a nasty virus, and you can’t even open Windows to try to restore it back to how it was?

Redo doesn’t need Windows. Download and burn the ISO, place it in your CD-ROM drive, and reboot your machine. The system will load a complete mini operating system with a point-and-click user interface into your computer’s memory, without writing any information to your hard drive. Then you will be able to perform backup, restore and recovery actions—guaranteed—even if you aren’t able to boot into your regular operating system.

Redo Backup and Recovery is a GPLv3 Perl script built with a GTK2+ interface designed in Glade. It is simply a front end to partclone, which performs the actual backup and restore. The live CD is built with xPUD to provide a graphical user interface and unmodified binaries of each program, but the script will run on any Linux platform that has the required programs installed. The Perl source code for the script is contained on the live CD itself. The source code for all other components is available from their respective project homes, subject to their respective licenses.
