This week a MMS, Microsoft announced the upcoming beta of DaRT 7, the Diagnostic and Recovery Toolkit. The beta will be out in early April and customers can sign up for the beta at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=213952.
Some of the new features to look forward to are:
- Added remote control functionality – remotely control a machine that won’t even boot into Windows by using WinPE.
- Fully supported USB Boot, as well as network boot and local installation.
- Local Tool Security – restrict the locally installed tools so that they can only be used during a remote recovery request to your helpdesk.
