Emergency Repair Utilities

Our Top Picks:   

ERD Commander 2000 Size: 780k Shareware: $349.00
ERD Commander 2000 is a powerful repair and
recovery tool that fixes problems that prevent Windows NT/2000 from booting, and salvages systems without losing critical data. ERD Commander 2000 gives you far more power to repair problems than Microsoft's standard Emergency Repair Disk, and even the Windows 2000 recovery console. Published by Winternals

Disk Commander Size: 4.6Mb Shareware $299
With Disk Commander, data loss doesn't have to be a disaster. Whether it's due to user error, damaged system files, or a computer virus, this data recovery tool allows you to reconstruct damaged files and salvage data from corrupt drives - even on unbootable systems. You can even use Disk Commander to recover crucial files on disks that have been reformatted, restore data that has been deleted, and repair corrupted partition table and boot sectors.

ER Disk   Size: Shareware
Don't trust your NT users to keep an updated copy of your Emergency Repair Disks. If you support a large community of NT Workstation Users with different hardware models, this utility will pay for itself in a short time. It creates a ERD disk for every workstation on your network automatically and stores it on a server. User's PC goes down? Copy their ERD disk image and get them back up and running in no time!  Published by Aelita

Remote Recover Size: 948K Shareware $299
Got a machine that won't boot? This great utility allows access to NTFS and FAT drives across a network without an operating system running on the target machine. Booting the target machine from a MS-DOS floppy disk, you can transparently access its NTFS and FAT disks from another NT system in order to edit or delete files, copy files or entire partitions, repair damaged file system structures using CHKDSK, format drives, or restore disks from backup. The demo version permits read-only access to client systems and allows only a limited amount of data to be transferred between disks. Published by

If you are looking for additional sources of Utilities, try these sites:

Beverly Hills Software
This sites been around a long time, and they do a great job. Software is rated, and easy to find, but some days the site seems a little slow.  
Great site, although a bit tough to navigate. Literally hundreds of programs are available.


SunBelt Software
Sunbelt Software is the world's first and largest provider of 'Best of Breed' NT Utilities. You get mainframe quality tech support, and the best tools all from one source. They also have a few great mailing lists, an online Tech "University", and a tech Glossary.

Well organized, and fast. Gotta love a page that gives a "Five Cow" rating for software. However, you may have to wade through a ton of end user software before you get to applications that you may actually find useful. NT Shareware
One of our favorite sites. All of software is well organized, lists license status, price, size, download time, etc., and the site is searchable.
