    Being an IT technician, I was taught that Hirens Boot Disk is a must have in any techie's arsenal. I wanted to know everyone else's opinions?

    Do you think having a Hirens disk is crucial? Do you prefer rather having a bunch of standalone apps? Or do you have an entirely different kind of bootable disk you swear by?

    I couldn't agree more! Hirens (or UBCD) is an essential for any techie - it has helped me out hugely when a PC has failed to boot. Having everything all in one place is fantastic a real timesaver.

    Here's a link in case other readers want to take a look:

    Personally, I've never really had a need for it. Its rare that I've been unable to boot into the operating system because of a software problem and hardware issues are fairly easy to diagnose without a boot CD. In fact, if you can't boot the OS due to a hardware problem, the chances of even being able to use the boot CD are also low.
