Install Ubuntu Rescue Remix to a Flash Drive

Create a Ubuntu Rescue Remix Bootable USB Flash Drive from within Windows. The following tutorial covers one method of installing and running (URR) Ubuntu Rescue Remix to a USB Flash Drive using a Windows PC and the Universal USB Installer to do the Boot creation. Upon completion, the distribution can then be booted and run from your removable device.

Created and maintained by Andrew Zajac, URR is a Linux system. It provides data recovery specialists with a simple command line interface. And it also comes equipped with some of the best free libre, open source data recovery and forensics tools available.

Keep in mind that you can also utilize a casper-rw loopback image file. This file is used for persistently saving changes, which can then be restored on subsequent boots.
