Another useful feature is the BCD (Boot Configuration Data) Backup/Repair.

The other program, for Windows 7, 8, Vista, XP has a simple menu that allows: repair BCD, backup/export BCD, restore/import BCD, repair the MBR, this is very useful when you don’t have the original Windows installation disc that allows to repair the Master Boot Record.
