Boot disk applications are designed to help the user fix various boot problems or perform other system operations. My BootDisk, is an accessible tool that can help you create various type of boot disks, depending on your system and problem.
Right from the start, you can notice that the software is able to create boot or repair floppy disks. Both the Boot Disk and Repair Disk are specific to a certain system, thus, you can create them so that they fit to your system's specifications.
Basically, My BootDisk can create start-up disks that come with a large number of system utilities, and also include mouse support.
Boot disks are usually used to fix boot problems, or repair various system crashes. However, My BootDisk, is an instrument that lets the user create disks that can help you partition your drive, scan for potential file damage, create backups of system and private files or create a rapid installation environment for your Windows operating system.
More than that, you can use boot disks to perform file extractions, format your drives, change different attributes, or copy files.
The app also comes with the ability to download standard boot disks directly from the web. Once downloaded, you'll be able to write it on your own floppy disk. The standard disks that can be down loaded are: MS-DOS 5.00, MS-DOS 6.20, MS-DOS 6.21, MS-DOS 6.22, Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 3.51, NT 4.0, 2000, and Windows XP. The boot disks can be downloaded any time.
Another cool feature is that you can create a floppy disk directly from a disk image. This can come in quite handy if you want to access a NTFS partition. All you have to do is get the NTFS Reader tool, download a NTFS Reader Disk Image, and create your disk. Now you know what you have to do if you want to access a NTFS partition from DOS.
Unfortunately, My BootDisk cannot create bootable CD/DVDs and it is only capable of creating floppy disks, and the program can prove itself useful if you need to repair a PC that is from an older generation, as most new ones do not even feature a FDD.
You also know that you can use this handy and easy-to-use tool to create the boot disks you need for restoring your system.
