File-XRay — Low-Level Explorer for Files

Summary: A tool to explore the real data contents of your files. Everything you always wanted to know about the way your data is recorded.

File-XRay recognizes following data structures, and displays them accordingly:

File Editing

File-XRay features an Edition mode, where you can write into the file, sector by sector. Needless to say that this feature can be very dangerous, but also very powerful.
