More about HDHacker

Since the program has been added to our selection of programs and apps in 2006, it has obtained 26,680 installations, and last week it had 45 installations.

About the download, HDHacker is a fairly light program that does not require as much space than most software in the section Software utilities. It's a software very heavily used in Egypt, Algeria, and Oman.

It's available for users with the operating system Windows 2000 and previous versions, and it is available in English. Its current version is 1.4 and was updated on 5/17/2010.

HDHacker is a stand-alone micro-util that saves, visualizes, restores the MBR (from a physical drive), the BootSector (from a logical drive) or any sector from a disk too.

It can be used, for example, to save and restore a particular boot manager (as LILO, for example) in case of a Windows new setup (that, obviously, overwrites it).

An MBR and BootSector backup can also be useful for simple precautionary purposes too, in fact sometimes viruses or other SO (Linux) setup could overwrite them and/or alter them, so it is impossible to start up previous SO and/or have access to datas stored on the disk.
