HDHacker Editor's Review

HDHacker is a tool, which can help you save sectors directly from your hard disk. It's also able to visualize and restore any of these sectors. This is useful if you want to keep a boot loader when you install a new operating system on your computer.

The program's user interface is very simple. HDHacker displays a panel containing the text representation of the bytes written on your hard disk and a couple of buttons. You have two options of reading from your hard disk. You can choose to read sectors on any logical drive defined on your computer, or to read the MBR (Master Boot Record). You should be careful when restoring from file because the program doesn't save the location on your hard disk where the data was. For example, if you save your MBR to a file, you can load it later and save it to a partition's boot sector. This makes it impossible to boot your system. However, if you use it with care, this program is a very good tool.

Pluses: It's freeware.

Drawbacks / flaws: This program is for advance users, who understand what it does.

In conclusion: This program does its job without a fancy user interface or wizards for saving or restoring your data.

version reviewed: 1.4

An MBR and BootSector...
