    Ultimate Boot CD for Windows

    This BartPE-based boot disc comes with a huge selection of tools to access your data and get your PC booting properly again. Some of them are even useful.

    Ultimate Boot CD for Window (UBCD) takes a long time to load and asks you some odd questions before it's finally up. But once it's there, you can edit the Windows Registry (yes, the one on the hard drive) in RegEdit, recover deleted files, and even run benchmarks. There are several malware scanners, four defraggers, and eight diagnostic programs (including HD Tune and Windows' own chkdsk).

    This boot CD also includes backup utilities to help you salvage your files. There's a driver backup and a system profile backup whose web-based documentation no longer comes up. And four separate image backup programs. One of those programs, DriveImage XML, we considered recommending in past articles but didn't because restoring from it requires a second Windows installation, something the program gets with UBCD.

    The experience of setting up UBCD is identical to creating a BartPE disc, with the same possibility of failure. But when it works, you get a lot more.
