Lately I've become obsessed w/backups and at least one of the computers I own has a custom MBR (Gateway w/F11 recovery), and several friends that I help-out have Dells with similar. So I wonder "how to backup MBR" and it seems ADDS doesn't have such a feature? I also use ATI and in this post MudCrab says "If you have a TI backup of the drive prior to installing OSS, you could restore the MBR from that." How would one recover just the boot blocks from a tib image? Thru searching I found MBRwizard and I also own Active Partition Recovery Enterprise, both of which do MBR backup & restore, but I'm curious as to why Acronis doesn't seem to do it.
