BOOTSave 2.8 BOOTSave 2.8 BootSave saves/restores the master boot sector

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!
