A tool to view, search, and open volumes, as well as to manage partitions basically on MBR and GPT-style disks. Other styles (e.g., hybrid, dynamic) are unsupported whilst partitions may be shown as found. Partition management includes removing and undeleting of removed and lost partitions, restoring boot sectors from their copies and other tools. Make sure to read the warning before use.
Marking the checkbox found causes express-search and displaying of lost and removed partitions. For more complex and deeper search use Full Scan. Volumes opened after the Full Scan are added to the list of found partitions and thus may be managed (e.g. may be undeleted if possible).
Info mode checkboxes:
(A) - bootable (active) partition status (Partition column).
Indicators indicate the presence of structures:
Found errors are colored in red. For incorrect/non-standard partitioning correct displaying is not guaranteed.
Attention! Partitioning modification may cause impossibility to boot from the disk or inaccessibility of some partitions after applying. Never modify partitioning of your boot or system disk. Use alternative boot disk or connect your disk as second to another computer. Run the software from the device which won't be modified and save current partitioning to a file on a device which won't be modified. After applying restart the computer or reconnect pluggable device for changes to take effect. Cancel the chkdsk utility (by pressing any key) if it runs automatically at startup as it may cause non-recoverable damage of the data.
Use the Menu button to view the operations available for the selected partition.
View and manually edit volume parameters before actually open volume.
Display volume letters assigned by OS.
Call the dialog box Copy Sectors to create partition image or clone the partition.
Insert lost or removed volume into the partition table. Invalid partitions may prevent insertion so they must be removed before insertion. Completely damaged partitioning may be resetted using the command Toggle MBR Signature On/Off applied to the topmost item. You should add partitions from the beginning to the end of the disk.
Remove the existing partition or a partition table. Some partitioning errors may be fixed by removing and inserting the partition.
Create unformatted (RAW) partition within the unallocated space. If there are no partitioning errors it is highly recommended to use only standard system tools for creating and removing partitions.
Replace damaged boot sector with a backup copy.
Set or reset active (A) status of a bootable partition.
Set or reset boot sector signature (0xAA55).
Reset boot sector signature (0xAA55) and signatures of GPT tables (EFI PART).
Set GPT and boot signatures. Available only on GPT disks after resetting.
Make DOS bootable disk.
Undo the last action.
Redo the last undone action.
Undo all partitioing changes.
Reset all unapplied changes.
Load disk partitioning or rollback data from a file. See Changes for details.
Save current partitioning to a file for a backup purposes. Available only if the device is partitioned and there are no unapplied changes.
Write changes to the disk. See Applying Changes for details.
