Zoom The Trinity Rescue Kit menu makes it easy for novice users to perform simple repairs.
After more than a year of development, developer Tom Kerremans has announced the release of version 3.4 of the Trinity Rescue Kit (TRK). TRK is a Live distribution – bootable via a LiveCD, LiveUSB or over a network – that's based on Mandriva Linux and is specifically aimed at recovery and repair operations for both Windows and Linux systems. For example, it includes a number of tools for recovering deleted files, resetting passwords and cloning drives.

Trinity Rescue Kit 3.4 uses the latest 2.6.35 Linux kernel and features an updated, easy to use scrollable text menu that provides access to its most commonly used features. Using the NTFS-3G read/write driver, TRK includes full NTFS file system write support. Other features include an application for removing various temporary files from a system, full proxy server support and several updates to the included packages. Five anti-virus programs with online update capabilities are included, integrated into a single uniform command-line, as well as two rootkit detection utilities.

More details about the release can be found in the official release announcement and in the change log. Trinity Rescue Kit 3.4 build 367 is available to download as a 146MB LiveCD from the project's site and online documentation is provided.
