That looks like a handy tool. Of course, if I was just interested in
filesystem access, I'd have it in the form of several LiveCD Linux
distros. I don't think BartsPE allows a system rollback as though one
were working with a fully operational Windows XP system, judging by what
I've been able to find. Does it?
In any case, it's a moot point now. The problem came up two months ago,
and was solved two months ago. I'll have to get BartsPE for my toolkit,
to go with the other ninety-some software tools I use, but I'm not sure
it would have been of any use for the specific problem I was having.
