HxD 1.7.7.0

Powerful application for editing hexadecimal code, disks and disk images, which features a checksum generator, file shredder and splitter, among others
HxD is a piece of software that enables users to edit hexadecimal code and disks easily, by providing them with a powerful set of features.

The GUI is made from a familiar window where you can open files in multiple tabs using either the file browser or drag-and-drop support.

It is possible to export data to Pascal, C, C#, Java, Visual Basic .NET, editor view, HTML, RTF, TeX, 16-bit, 20-bit and 32-bit Intel hex, as well as to Motorola S19, S28 and S37 records.

All hex modifications are highlighted in red by default. You can undo actions, use the cut, copy and paste functions, as well as insert bytes in hexadecimal, decimal or octal mode and choose the filling pattern (hex values or random bytes).

Additionally, you can select a block by specifying the offset range and positional numeral system, use a search and replace function with filters (data type, Unicode string, case sensitive, prompt on replace, search direction), and jump to a particular offset and set the relative point (begin, current offset, backwards).

The hexadecimal content can be adjusted to fit the window width, and it is possible to establish the number of bytes per row. You can select the charset, offset base, visible columns, and byte group size, get statistics, compare files, generate and compare checksums (CRC16, CRC32, SHA1, SHA512, MD5 and many others).

Furthermore, you can open the main memory of a running process, open a disk or disk image, concatenate, split or shred files, integrate HxD into the Explorer content menu, enable automatic backups, customize colors and fonts, and others.

The application has minimal impact on system performance, running on low CPU and RAM. It has a good response time and performs smoothly. We have not come across any difficulties in our tests, since the utility did not hang or crash. To conclude, HxD is an excellent tool for editing hex code and it works on newer operating systems, even if it has not been updated for a long while.

There is also a portable edition available, if you want to bypass the installer and run HxD from a USB flash disk.

What's New in This Release:
  • Bug fixes:
  • Saving files when HxD is closing effectivly works only for the file in the active window.
  • If BytesPerRow is larger than a certain amount, characters in the hex editor overlap.
  • Opening "My Network Places" in any open or save file dialog could crash HxD, depending on the Windows version. This was due to neutral language identifiers in the VersionInfo which the OS does not generally support.
