A small utility called Bootice is a surprisingly powerful application enabling the user to manage the system loading sectors on disks installed on their computer, as well as to format them, which is extremely useful when having external flash or USB memories that are formatted in the file systems unfamiliar to Windows (that is everything other than FAT or NTFS).
The program allows us to modify, create a backup copy and restore Master Boot Record (MBR) and Partition Boot Record (PBR) for the local drives and USB drives. Thus, it is possible to create USB disks from scratch as well as modify the already existing ones. We can again create partitions on our memories as well as clean them, adjusting to our needs. The program allows us to modify boot records from systems like Grub4Dos, SysLinux, Plop, Windows NT5/6, etc. (that is all the contemporary ones). Other functions of the program are: supporting disk images, filling the hard disk with random data (which is necessary for cleaning it later), managing partitions and much more.
The program’s interface is simple and easy to use but at the same time powerful. Therefore, we have to be careful when using the program as we may accidentally lose the content of disks as a result of damaging MBR or PBR. Therefore, the program is intended mainly for professionals and advanced computer users.
