Best all-in-one WinPE boot environment for reversers (2020)?

I have found this looks to be now the de facto best boot CD. A lot of us used to use Hiren's 15.2 but that has been long out of maintenance. Find it here as WinPE 10-8 Sergei Strelec (x86/x64/Native x86) 2019.12.28 English version:
What is included in x64? A very impressive list of recent programs which I assume are properly cracked and licensed:

The Russian version is even more updated as of 2020-02-19:
Anyway, if anyone knows of anything better kindly share. Otherwise this looks pretty amazing for a mere 4GB, I have had special tools like Active Partition Recovery save me more than a few times from accidentally destroyed partitions. Being able to use WinHex could be nice for forensic cleaning at boot time. Even HDDRegenerator to get those bad clusters fixed on magnetic disks. Basically no problem I have ever seen, that the tools in this set would not make repairable at the cost of critical analysis time.

Oh, and if you choose to download, the mega link seems to be the best option.

Nice that is pretty good tool listing although it seems they are all included in the aforementioned ISO. The problem is downloading all the individual ISOs of every tool, and putting on a USB requires a 64GB or 128GB USB key. But the all-in-one variant easily fits on an 8GB drive.

Although if really needing latest and greatest versions or only very specific tools as they come out then certainly the link above is the way to go. Probably this is the only all-in-one ISO for the last year or two - considering its a pretty niche project to do but incredibly useful on some occasions.
