Before downloading and using this tool, I recommend that you have advanced computer skills. Hirens Boot CD is an advanced tool that can wreak havoc on a system something awful. You have been warned…
Hirens Boot CD Features
Drive partitions are drive divisions. Not all installations are created equally, but partitions exist in every environment. For instance the main partition where all system files and programs are stored in Windows is generally called “C:”. An example of another type of partition is a system recovery partition. Recovery partitions are normally installed as “D:”. Other partitions may exist depending on your configuration. Another common partition is for a Boot Loader. Boot loaders execute instructions for where the computer should look to run operating systems(i.e. Windows) after powering on. Occasionally drive partitions can become corrupted. Hirens BootCD has tools that can be used to fix partition problems.
Backup & Recovery
When data is “deleted” it is not actually erased. The file is simply un-indexed to be written over as new data is recorded to the drive. Hirens Boot CD contains data recovery tools that can help to restore lost data. There are no guarantees for recovering lost data. Time is the most important variable that comes into play when looking for lost data since the drive space where it was stored is writable again.
Sometimes viruses are so bad that they can actually take over and render OS supported recovery tools useless. Hirens Boot CD allows users to boot to a separate operating system that can access files from an infected operating system. This can be a very effective and powerful method for removing a virus.
When system performance issues exist, it can sometimes be difficult to pin-point the actual problem. Malware and Viruses can slow a PC down. So can hardware. Bad hardware can bring a system to a grinding halt. Sometimes literally with an occasional burnt plastic smell. Hirens Boot CD testing tools can help uncover hidden problems.
Ever need to reset or remove a Windows Administrator account password? This little tool can work wonders.
