It's definitely possible, I'd imagine, to restore a Windows box with Dirvish.
But it would be one of the more ineffective methods of doing so. Dirvish is
best for *NIX platforms, and I'd suggest that continue to be the platform
targeted for improvements to an already outstanding tool.
If someone has a way to restore a Windows box to a functional state with
Dirvish, I'd love to hear about it, though. It'd certainly be nice to be
able to use the same tool on Win32.
