HEX Editor Tool


Hex Editor is advanced tool for viewing and editing sectors of Physical Disks, Partitions and contents of any file type. Hex Editor uses a simple, low-level disk viewer which displays information in binary and text modes at the same time. You can use this view to analyze the contents of data storage structure elements such as:

  • Hard disk drives
  • Floppy drives
  • Partitions
  • Files

To Open any of these Items in the Editor:

  1. In the Active@ UNDELETE Recovery Explorer tree pane or file pane select an item.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • From the Edit menu, click Open In Hex Editor.
    • Right-click the item and click Open In Hex Editor from the context menu.

Hex Editor shows detailed information about the selected object in the information panel on the left side of the view. The right panel displays the binary and text view of the file. After the Hex Editor view appears, you may browse through the content of the open item using the scroll bar, keyboard arrows or the mouse wheel.

Click either the binary area or the text area to focus on it. You may also use the Tab keyboard key to switch the focus between hexadecimal and text modes.
