Best tool to backup boot sector RRS feed

  • Question

  • It's my understanding that Steadystate will not protect against boot sector viruses, even when WDP is enabled.

    I am looking for a reliable tool to backup the boot sector while Windows XP is running. I found HDHacker at  http://dimio.altervista.org/eng/

    My goal is to write a small batch file and do an "fc" command to compare the current boot sector to a copy that was made before the system may have been infected.

    Any comments and suggestions would be appreciated.

  • Hi Barry, as we do not support custom script/batch file development in this forum, you may need to write your own custom script/batch file. Thank you for your understanding.
