After restoring a volume to a partition on a new disk. Hidden sectors needs to be patched under certain configuration. For this I am using Boot Build 1.0 and it works great by entering new value in "Hidden Sectors" box. Well, this makes the ntfs boot sector copy invalid. Verified using active disk editor and opensource testdisk. Can you fix BootBuild to handle boot sector copy too?

More details, hidden sector change from 206848 to 2048. The result is, backup boot sector is not updated and volume signature mismatched too.

Hi there, you can use my sector editor for a boot sector copy. Just open the boot sector, copy to the clipboard, change disks and paste! But i will add some more features to this when I have time along with a partition editor and support for non 512 byte sector sizes.
