Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
This handy application manages your master boot record (MBR), but the interface and program complexity render it appropriate for advanced users only. MBRFix's command-line-executable interface has 13 functions that are easily listed with the /? option. The utility was designed to save an MBR to a file for transfer or backup. Drive-partition information is easy to get and delete with two command-line arguments. Advanced users will find it simple to read, write, or generate drive signatures with the proper arguments. The included HTML document page lists the arguments but expects users to understand their use. MBRFix is a tiny executable and operates quickly; most operations are completed in a few seconds. However, users can accidentally delete partitions and important data. Accordingly, we highly recommend this invaluable freeware tool only for system techs and advanced users who often install operating systems and switch out drives.
