The Master Boot Record (MBR) is a special type of boot sector that is located at the very beginning of the storage medium. It tells your computer what to do when it starts. It also contains information about how your hard drive is partitioned. If the MBR is damaged or damaged, whether by a boot sector virus, malware or other, you may find that the data on your hard disk is irretrievably lost.
Backup Master Boot Record
MBR Backup helps you create a backup of your Master Boot Record. If you need to restore it, you will have a valid copy. There are two ways to save your MBR – to a file or by printing.
Print is the best way to save your MBR for several reasons :
- With a printout, you always have a physical copy of the MBR at hand
- No chance of saving the MBR in a damaged file on the hard disk
- The MBR only has a size of 512 bytes. Manual entry is the least of the problems when all your data has disappeared.
