Hard drive sector viewer ?

Post by exxos » Sat Mar 14, 2020 11:44 pm

Anyone know of any program which can view sectors in hex on the ST ? I think diamond edge could do it.. but anything lightweight which will do the job would do...

What about Knife ST (HiSoft)?

Diskus by Uwe Seimet (now free) comes into my mind.

The SED_5.68 (latest version? 4.4.95) is crashing with bus error under NAES_2, but works under NAES_1, MAGX_6.21, SoloMiNT_1.15.9 ... with comfortable handling.
Support of Diskus_3.99.2 (2016) was abondended short after I baught it ...
KnifeST_1.10 (07-05-91) seems to be a little outdated.
They can do FAT12 & FAT16 only, not FAT32.
With DiamondEdge_2.57 (26.01.2017) I lack experience (the inst. scares me). Can it handle FAT32 ?

If you manage to copy a HD sector into a file, then there is a nice little Hexe:
FileCompare_2.2 (1989) by Bodo Wenzel. Or a nice little Hexer: BinView_0.11 (1.8.97) by Jens Brüggemann.
Falcon, TT & some more
