A computer disk includes a Master Boot Record (MBR). The MBR is located in sector 0 of the physical disk and contains important information regarding system start-up. It also contains up to four entries describing volume locations, file system types, etc. If the Master Boor Record (MBR) becomes corrupted, then the PC may no longer boot, drives can become inaccessible, etc.
DriveRestore Professional will repair:
• Corrupted partitions.
• Virus damaged file systems.
• Corrupted MBRs - Disk Boot failure.
• Invalid media errors.
• Invalid drive specification errors.
A disk may also include an Extended Partition (EP). An Extended Partition replaces one of the primary partitions and was introduced to enable the physical disk to be divided into more than four logical drives. The EP boot sector retains information about how many partitions there are within the Extended Partition, where they are located, etc. If an extended partition becomes corrupted then drives may no longer be accessible.
DriveRestore Professional will analyze the Master boot record, partition tables, Extended partition boot sector, Active partitions, system areas, etc., for errors and automatically repair them. DriveRestore Professional will also surface scan the PC drives for physical damage.
Portable media devices such as the iPod, MP3 players etc., contain the latest micro drives. Memory devices e.g. Flash drives, contain no moving parts but appear to the computer as a physical drive. These devices, as with all drives, can experience problems resulting in the device freezing, crashing or failing to start. DriveRestore Professional will repair your iPod, or removable drive, quickly, easily and with no loss of data.
iPod corrupted, iPod not responding (frozen) or tracks skipping? The only method up until now of restoring your corrupted iPod was by using the iPod restore (reformatting) function and restoring the iPod back to its original factory settings. Using the iPod restore function has many disadvantages however e.g. iPod restore will erase ALL of your music, photos, videos, playlists, etc.
