Bootice by Pauly is a portable tool that enables users to backup, modify and manipulate a partition MBR (Master Boot Record) or PBR (Partition Boot Record).
It's a useful tool in that it can help you to re-partition or format a USB flash device - or most other types of storage devices - especially if it's been formatted with a filesystem that Windows doesn't recognize.
The layout of Bootice is configured into 7 tabs, starting with "Physical Disk", "Disk Image", "BCD", "Utilties", "UEFI" and Command Line; the latter being directions on how to use the device in the command prompt.
Bootice currently supports Grub4Dos, SysLinux, Plop, Windows NT 5 and Windows NT 6. Bootice can work with IMG, IMA or VHD images as well as processing their MBR or PBR sectors.
Bootice is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from hard disk partition software without restrictions. Bootice 126.96.36.199 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
Compatibility with this master record booter software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from iPauly.
