MBRtool is a utility designed to backup, restore and
manipulate your hard disk MBR.

the disk. If anything happens to the contents of this sector, the
data on your disk could be unreachable. Or the computer might simply
not start anymore.
MBRtool is not an automatic recovery program but will allow
users to prevent data loss (caused by MBR corruption) by backing up
the MBR, and offers power users all the power they'll ever need to
'mess' with their MBR.
New: the MBRtool installer now includes an easy to use
boot diskette builder that will assist you in creating a diskette or
