HxD

Program: HxD Version:1.7
Author: Maël Hörz
Website: [ http://mh-nexus.de/en/hxd/ ]
Download: [ 852 Kb ]
Requirements: Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2K/XP/Vista/7
Description: HxD is a carefully designed and fast hex editor which, additionally to raw disk editing and modifying of main memory (RAM), handles files of any size. The easy to use interface offers features such as searching and replacing, exporting, checksums/digests, insertion of byte patterns, a file shredder, concatenation or splitting of files, statistics and much more. Editing works like in a text editor with a focus on a simple and task-oriented operation, as such functions were streamlined to hide differences that are purely technical. For example, drives and memory are presented similar to a file and are shown as a whole, in contrast to a sector/region-limited view that cuts off data which potentially belongs together. Drives and memory can be edited the same way as a regular file including support for undo. In addition memory-sections define a foldable region and inaccessible sections are hidden by default. Furthermore a lot of effort was put into making operations fast and efficient, instead of forcing you to use specialized functions for technical reasons or arbitrarily limiting file sizes. This includes a responsive interface and progress indicators for lengthy operations.
Notes: Be sure to read the instructions, notes and anything else with this or you may lose data.

Linux Reader

Program: Linux Reader Version:2.1
Author: DiskInternals, ltd.
Website: [ http://www.diskinternals.com/linux-reader/ ]
Download: [ 19.7 Mb ]
Requirements: Windows XP/Vista/7/8
Description: How to get safe and quick access to alternative file systems? DiskInternals Linux Reader is a new easy way to do this. This program plays the role of a bridge between your Windows and Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, HFS and ReiserFS file systems. This easy-to-use tool runs under Windows and allows you to browse Ext2/3/4, HFS and ReiserFS file systems. There are a number of evident merits of the program, which you should know. First of all, DiskInternals Linux Reader is absolutely free. Secondly, the program provides for read-only access and does not allow you to make records in file system partitions. This guarantees that the interference in an alterative file system will not affect the work of Linux later. Apart from this, it is necessary to note, that it gives you an opportunity to use common Windows Explorer for extracting data. A preview option for pictures is one more pleasant point, which is worth mentioning.
