I would like your opinion on which is better to use as a boot disk when needed
Bart PE or UBCD (universal Boot CD)
I have got most other software sorted but am confussed in what to use in this are.
So what one do you use and why

Which is better really depends on your needs. I've used both in the past, as well as knoppix and other various bootable CD's. I tend to carry several bootable CD's so I can which ever one I feel will be most effective at the time.

As tkrabec said, it really does depend. A Bart PE based disc like Ultimate BootCD for Windows is great. But sometimes you just need to do some quick partition work or something else from a dos tool and UBCD is great for that.

Ive tried both and UBCD is my weapon of choice. Although UBCD is actually a version of BartPE, it has many computer repair tools that come along with it unlike the stock BartPE.

UBCD is not based on BartPE, UBCD 4 WIN is based n BartPE, UBCD is dos based :)

My vote goes to Reatogo-x-pe which are non of the 2. I have used the 2 but I like Reatogo for a few reasons. I use it somewhat barebones without all the plugins. I just pop my usb drive in with all my utilities on it.
