EasyBCD Comments

The optimal solution

Positive Comment by retrojedi7
about EasyBCD Jul 2016

I know and use this program for 6 years. It get me out of many troublesome situations that would be tough nut to crack otherwise.
Last time the 'Change boot drive' function was very helpful when I installed a new HDD into my desktop pc and wanted to start the OS from it.

EasyBCD does what I need to, and at the same time, the user interface doesn't confuse the hell out of me. That's all I'm asking for.
