New feature request: Bootable CD option to run backup

Would it be possible to add an option to do a full backup from bootable CD?

Yuki, if you can do an entire (full) backup with the machine running from VEB why would you want to do it with it powered off?

Yuki,

We have received that request a couple of times and it is one of those (we have many ;-)) that is under review

Jax, the reason would be when there is a faulty computer, people (IT Engineers) would like to boot if normal booting is not possible, take a backup of the files and then do whatever they need to do to recover the machine, and recover the files ;-)

Cheers

Mike
