    "Waste of my time, even after I figured it out"

    August 31, 2010   |   By free2create

    Version: BartPE Bootable Live Windows CD/DVD 3.1.10a

    Pros

    Looks very exciting with 100's of plugins I couldn't use. P.S. source=Installation disk path not that it matters because it still wont work.

    Cons

    I was using a dell oem xp disc for my source but I made sure the "oem fix" was enabled. It kept catching errors with the regkeys and could not gain access to delete the reg hives it created thereby rendering it useless.

    Summary

    I even tried it in safe mode a few times with a few different disks and settings. It could not build the registry.

    Bottom line, when things seem to good to be true they probably are. I think I'll use a linux environment in the future or just keep hunting down good old dos utilities. I seriously and strongly advise waisting your time with this if you have an OEM version of XP (i don't see what difference it makes). If your XP isn't oem, maybe just try to build the registry in safe mode (F8 during win startup) for 20-30 mins and if you are still getting errors, just cut your losses. 1 Error renders the entire time spent absolutely useless. good luck

    "Got Me Out of Trouble - Often"

    April 11, 2010   |   By Barbara866

    Version: BartPE Bootable Live Windows CD/DVD 3.1.10a

    Pros

    Good for salvaging files and start up issues

    Cons

    Would Like more utilities

    Summary

    Had a friends computer with a bad boot.ini file and this program fixed it and the machine was now OK. Disk check feature is ok for almost all drives. Good for getting files off of non-bootable machines. Solid set of tools with no surprises, but not a tool for the newcomer.

    "Just does not work pproperly"

    February 07, 2010   |   By koallajojo

    Version: BartPE Bootable Live Windows CD/DVD 3.1.10a

    Pros

    here's nothing to like about it

    Cons

    It is clunky at best. It does not create a boot disk as described. I've been a computer user since 1972, happily migrating from mainframe to micro's his software does not pull all the needed files to make a boot disk.

    Summary

    The software refused too many of the needed files on my Windows source disk contrary to the claims that it would. completely refused to work as claimed in spite of all my efforts to make it work. A total waste of my time. I told the intro menu exactly where to find the source files, where to create its log file and where to create the boot disk image on blank CD's or DVD'S, wasting 2 CD-R, and wearing out my patience. I think the positive rev reviews before mine may have been written B4 the users ever tried get the software to work. It doesn't work, PERIOD!

    Pros

    Easy to create and use. Loaded first time and allowed me to copy directories onto a spare disk when my XP had a registry problem and it's free!!!

    Cons

    Nothing at all

    Summary

    It's free and does what it says on the tin

    "A Very Good Tool Saved My Data"

    June 28, 2009   |   By rfpeng

    Version: BartPE Bootable Live Windows CD/DVD 3.1.10a

    Pros

    One of my notebook was infected by virus. It blocked all the program and even could not start with safe mode. I had struggled for two days and tried many different tools. Finally I found this tool to get my data before reinstall the Window XP.

    Cons

    In the file management, it does not allow to delete directory only file. It is not a big problem just a little inconvenience.

    Summary

    I like this product. Very easy to use and solve problem.

    "BOOOOOOO!!"

    November 10, 2008   |   By cwoodalluk

    Version: BartPE Bootable Live Windows CD/DVD 3.1.10a

    Pros

    The only pro of this software is when you DO NOT USE IT.

    Cons

    Boot your PC from CD-ROM and have full access to NTFS volumes, YEAH RIGHT!! great if you have the installation files to start of with. I need a program that WILL just create the dam disk or CD.

    Summary

    In Summary the only thing I liked about this program is that you could uninstall it from the add/remove programs window which quite alot of programs tend to hide themselves away from.

    "Probably good, not for a newbie, can't use windows setup from another computer"

    December 26, 2007   |   By Jacqueline Goodison

    Version: BartPE Bootable Live Windows CD/DVD 3.1.10a

    Pros

    Although they have a forum, it wasn't very friendly to newbies (I didn't contribute, just read) and was very technical. I'm not exactly a newbie, but I had a hard time with this, wish there was a more informative manual. Found out only after much reading and searching that you needed the original Windows setup for the computer you were trying to fix, I could not use one Windows setup to fix the other. I had an ntfs system error, my cd was broke, needed to boot from USB, tried several programs but "active boot disk" (at ntfs.com website) was the only thing that helped after weeks of searching and reading. This Bart thing has lots of good reviews, and a steady following, and looks promising, but it wasn't for me.

    Cons

    Found the manual lacking (and from reading the forum other people did to). Didn't work for me to fix ntfs.sys error. I just felt things were too technical (and I am familiar with Bios, Dos, etc.) and had a hard time finding answers. I gave up, downloaded active boot disk, used 2nd computer and was able to boot from USB on my other computer and solve problem about my missing or corrupted ntfs.sys error and both computers working great.
