BootSave saves/restores the master boot sector on the
hard disk. Suite of three utilities BootSave, BootRest and
BootChk. Protects against damage to the partition table or
boot sector done by rogue programs, viruses or accidents
with tools like Norton NU.
The BootSave suite will work under DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows
95/98/ME, OS/2, but not NT, Windows 2000, XP, Vista or Windows 7.
These OSes block low level disk I/O as a security measure.
You should temporarily boot from a DOS diskette to save or
restore. You can save the boot record under Win2K/XP (but
not Vista) but you must boot under DOS to do the restore.
This version does NOT save the boot sectors for each
individual partition, just the MBR (master boot record) that
contains the primary booting code, and the partition
information for the four primary partitions. Have a look at
Acronis or Boot-It for a complete backup.
You must use
BootSave PRIOR to damaging your hard disk to be of any use!
