Partition Saving is a DOS and Windows program that is used to save, restore and copy hard-drive, partitions, floppy disk and DOS or Windows devices.
With this program you could save all data on a partition to a file (such as you could save this file on a CD for example). Then if something goes wrong, you can completely restore the partition from the backup file. You no longer have to reinstall every piece of software from scratch. All you have to do is restore the partition from the backup file and then update any software that was modified since the backup was created.
Major change is that it is first Windows version (DOS version still
existing). There is some differences between these versions, notably Windows
version cannot save full disk or active system partition. I cannot test
this version on all Windows version, but, less for the 64 bits Windows for which
I cannot perform any test (it is better you perform some try before if you want
to use the Windows version on these Windows versions), differences between
versions shall not be a problem. Both versions (DOS and Windows ones) are into
the same file that does not need any installation (just uncompress it into a
Others evolutions are:
add of an option to replace a boot sector or a superblock by its copy (it
can be useful when your drive suddenly appears as "RAW" in
add of an option to modify disk physical definition into a boot sector (it
can be used in case you have some boot problem as NTLDR is missing and the
file is here).
add of an option to avoid checking free drive space when creating backup
file (if you have a driver that reports a wrong free size).
add of option to save boot sector or superblock only of a partition.
add of command line and options file options to take these new functions
a better search and handling of boot sector copy for NTFS 1.2 partitions
(NT <= 3.51).
bad sectors are no more saved when saving occupied sectors only for NTFS
and ext2/ext3 partitions (this was already the case for FAT partitions).
when saving a partition on itself, using DOS drive letter of saved
partition to create backup file is no more available, you have to use the
mount mechanism for the saved partition.
