croak

 
Every once in a while, I get to do something really interesting or something
really satisfying...sometimes both. On occasions, I've had the chance to crack
something really challenging. Over the years, I've realized the importance of
documenting - re-inventing the wheel is not so much fun third time onwards ;)

Like the other day, I was able to help out a friend with a crashed hard-disk -
more like a soft crash - a corrupted MBR. It was a USB hard drive but
fortunately  Win32 API does not let that be a problem...The CreateFile
function can be passed \\PhysicalDrive0 and BINGO, you can do reading and
writing without any problem! I had to do some googling before I could come up
with some useful programs...

Anyway, now I have those programs here on this site!
