MbrFix Updated to Fix Windows 7 Master Boot Record
A master boot record (MBR), or partition sector, is the 512-byte boot sector that is the first sector (“LBA Sector 0”) of a partitioned data storage device such as a hard disk. It is a very important sector that records information which tells the computer on how to boot and load the operating systems. If the MBR if corrupted, most probably you will just see a black screen with no error messages at all. Some viruses are able to do damages on MBR and it is important that a computer user has a backup of the MBR to restore back in case if its corrupted or changed to point to somewhere that is invalid.
However if you do not have a backup copy of your MBR because you just got to know the important of MBR, then you can use a useful tool called MbrFix to automatically fix the MBR so that your computer can boot correctly to Windows. Other than fixing MBR, MbrFix can also perform several Master Boot Record (MBR) tasks, like backing up, restoring, etc. The utility should not be used for GUID Partition Table (GPT) disks.
