Publisher's Description:

BOOTSave - 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!

Version: 2.6

got a bootsector virus--- nothing seems to work any more . Hence also failure to use Bootsave. Sorry no useful comment today, but 60 GB of Hard disk are still waiting to be cured.
Apparently the sectors 32 to 46 can't be written,erased ect as write protected.
