MBRWizard helps resolve many types of MBR problems that commonly occur to Windows and Linux machines, and offers features to repair, restore, and protect your MBR. Starting with MBRWizard 3.0, we added a simple graphical interface (GUI) version, to further simplify managing and repairing your MBR. You also find a bootable media ISO included with the product, helping you boot machines that are otherwise unable to boot to get your machine up and running ASAP!

Can you afford to lose your pictures, music and videos, financial information, reports, and all of the other important files on your disk.
