Editors' Review

If the acronym MBR isn't immediately recognizable, then this powerful tool isn't for you. Expert users needing to back up, verify or restore the Master Boot Record will find this application very useful. As a DOS application, the program is command-line driven, but MBRtool includes an option to use a simple DOS menu interface. The best method to use MBRtool is on a bootable floppy disk. Load the program, and with simple commands, you easily manipulate the MBR.

MBRtool can quickly edit or wipe a Partition Table, back up or clean track 0, or alter the bootcode. We were able to quickly perform attribute changes on the Partition Table. This 157-KB utility would be a welcome addition to an administrator's toolbox.

But MBRtool isn't perfect. It only supports the first four drives the BIOS locates. The application is three years old, and there is no guarantee it will support the newest OS/drive combinations. It's best to try it first on a test system. Regardless, advanced users and system administrators without a favorite MBR manipulation tool should give this freeware a try.
