Xanara is a Recovery Live CD based on Ubuntu Linux 7.10. It is a live Linux distribution that aims specifically at recovery and repair operations on Windows machines but is equally usable for Linux recovery issues after a crash. It provides an easy way to carry out administration tasks on the computer such as creating and editing the partitions of the hard disk. It contains a lot of system utilities. By just booting the CDROM, the users can straight away perform the recovery process without any installations. The kernel supports most of the important file systems even the latest and rarely used like NTFS, JFS and ext4.
Xanara can perform normal rescue operations like other rescue Linux distributions but it is equipped with 3 brand new applications which are Backup on LAN, Real Server Backup and MySQL Backup.
