Any boot Distros for specific jobs!!

Linux distros are great on your Hard Drive but even better on a DVD/CD when you have an issue sometimes you need specific help. Distro's such as clonezilla for Hard Drive Cloning, and Gparted for partitions/drive tools.
Does anyone know of aly tools like that such as Hard Drive repair to fix Windows or linux problems. Hard Drive recovery, etc...
