Microsoft DaRT 8 Beta Q&A


This week I had a chance to sit down with Craig Ashley, product manager for Microsoft’s Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT), to discuss the next release of the toolset and the public beta that is now available.

DaRT has been a favorite tool for many IT pros, dating back to its days as part of Winternals Admin Pack. As a quick review, the taoolset can help IT professionals reduce the challenges associated with troubleshooting and repairing system failures on Windows-based desktops, saving time for both them and users. Administrators can easily recover PCs that have become unusable, rapidly diagnose probable causes of issues, and quickly repair unbootable or locked-out systems, all without leaving the office, making it much faster than the average time it takes to reimage a machine. When necessary, it can also quickly restore critical lost files. This helps make PCs safer to use, makes them easier and less expensive to manage, and keeps employees productive,.

For additional details on DaRT or other products within the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, visit the MDOP Resource Zone on TechNet.
