How to make backup and restore MBR, Partition Table and Boot Sectors?

Problem:

I want to create backup copy of my boot information to be able to recover later?

Solution:

MBR backup function is available in Active@ UNERASER from version 2.0.

If you are a registered customer we offer you to make a free upgrade to the version 2.0 in our Customer Support Center.

  • Run Active@ UNERASER 2.0
  • Select HDD you want to backup
  • Insert floppy disk and press [Ctrl]+[B]
  • Information will be saved to A:\HDD80h.MBR if you backup HDD 80h

    Undelete files by UNERASER

Using this floppy you can virtually restore MBR later on.

To restore MBR, Partition Table and Volume Boot Sectors from backup use the following steps:

  • Insert floppy disk containing MBR backup file
  • Run Active@ UNERASER 2.0 with a parameter of -restoreMBR like:
    A:\>UNERASER.EXE -restoreMBR=80h

It will virtually restore MBR, Partition Table and Volume Boot sectors to the state as it was before (when the backup MBR was created). You can see your drives and folders, and can recover deleted files and folders to another drive. It is important to keep the MBR, Partition Table and Volume Boot Sectors backup regularly.

If your partition becomes damaged and you need to restore it from the backup and save MBR, Partition Table and Volume Boot Sectors information back to the HDD we advise you to use Active@ Partition Recovery software.
