BOOTCOPY : Copy Disk Boot Record Program
Version 1.00, 04-Mar-1987
SMG Software

(C) Copyright 1987 by
Steven Georgiades
All Rights Reserved

This program enables the user to copy the disk boot record from a
known good disk to a disk which has had its own boot record corrupted.
To determine if a disk's boot record is corrupted, run DISKINFO on it.
If DISKINFO returns strange values, or if it gives a "Divide Overflow"
error, you probably have a corrupted boot record. When using BOOTCOPY,
you must ensure that the source disk is of the same format as the
destination disk. In other words, if the damaged disk was a
singlesided, 8 TPI disk, the source disk must also be single sided and
8 TPI.

Command Format:

BOOTCOPY d1: d2:

d1: Source Drive Letter. This is the drive from which the
boot record will be copied, and should contain the known
good disk.

d2: Destination Drive Letter. This is the drive to which
the boot record will be copied, and should contain the
corrupted disk.


BOOTCOPY A: B: (Will copy the Boot Record from Drive A: to Drive B:)
