Attention: If we do not assign DriverNo, the new MBR will be written in booting device,
namely the driver that loads host system. If the system detects invalid or the non-standard
partition mark, it will prompt that whether continue to execute this command or not. Only if
there are some problems with the driver you visit; otherwise, please do not continue.
By default MBR structure will be checked. If it is abnormal, it will prompt that whether
recover or not. If choose “Y”, it will search partitions. When it has found the partition, it will
also prompt that whether to revise MBR or not. If choose “Y”, recovery will be finished. If
the system is down now, please inactivate the anti-virus function in BIOS first and then
By default, it will search all existing hard disk, and finish all mentioned operations above. If
the result is not right, you may use “/Z” parameter to clear the result and restart; then it
returns to the original condition.
2.Recovery of Partition
The partition recovery is generally the second step of the whole process. Because apart from some
tools that directly reads and writes hard disk, most of tool software runs under operation system,
working with the system calling. While operation system’s visiting disk is on the basis of MBR
and DBR; without MBR and DBR, operation system is unable to visit file system. Therefore, if
the partition table is corrupted, we need rebuild partition table, which is usually fulfilled manually;
in some special cases it can be done automatically by some working software.
If partition table is corrupted, there are many tools to rebuild it automatically, if only the problem
is not too serious. If it is too serious, or the partition table structure is too complex, it may possibly
be out of the reach of their ability to rebuild. In this case, we need do it manually. Usually we use
some tool software to recover the lost partition table, such as Norton Utilities 8.0, DiskMan,
KV3000/Kavfix PartitionMagic etc. Here we introduce Partition Table Doctor.
3.Partition Table Doctor
Partition Table Doctor is the only real software for hard disk partitions recovery. When you come
up against a drive error (not hardware failure) this versatile tool would automatically check and
repair the Master Boot Record, partition table, and the boot sector of the partition with an error, to
recover the FAT16/FAT32/NTFS/NTFS5/EXT2/EXT3/SWAP partition on IDE/ATA/SATA/SCSI
hard disk drives. It can create an emergency floppy disk or a bootable CD to recover the bad
partition even if your operation system fails to boot. Partition Table Doctor manages for MS-DOS,
Freedos, Windows 95/98/Me, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows 2003.
There are two modes for partition recovery: “auto mode” and “interactive mode”.
