mbr tools for windows and dos

Master Boot Record (MBR) tools for windows and dos. save from disk to file, restore to disk from file, and print MBR info (partitions, etc) from disk or file. Deals with the Master Boot Record, which contains the partition tables on a PC.

They are command-line programs to be run under the CMD shell, or command.com. A disk geometry report is displayed both before saving and restoring. before restoring, there is confirmation asked after the disk geometry report.
these are not toys. With mbrrestore you can either restore or ruin the partition table of
your hard disk. If you do happen to ruin it, I suggest getting it back
with testdisk, available at http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

The MBR is the first sector of the hard disk. you can find information about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mbr
