Emergency Repair Disk, an ERD is a diskette that creates backups of important system files and settings and is used to help troubleshootand fix issues for Microsoft WINNT and WIN 2000. The ERD is used in conjunction with the Windows repair option and you will be prompted for the diskette when needed. Note: The ERD is not to be confused with a standard boot diskette as it cannot be used alone.

The ERD is capable of performing such checks as:

1.      Verifying the boot sector is not corrupt.

2.      Repairing any startup files.

3.      Locate any missing or damaged system files.
