Unlike text editors, Hex editors are capable to display and manipulate the binary data of any file type. The application is not usually addressed to the average computer users, due to the knowledge required to recover damaged or deleted files by using only control codes and executable code.
All the data displayed uses two-digit numbers based on the hexadecimal system which uses only 16 digits from 0 to 9 and A to F. WinHex enables users to change the value of any bite just by changing these values in hexadecimal mode.
The application supports a wide array of partition types including: FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, NTFS, Ext2/3/4, Next3, CDFS and UDF. As a disk editor, WinHex allows you to inspect and recover lost, deleted or corrupt data from almost any kind of media including: hard disks, floppy disks, CD-ROM & DVD drives, ZIP, Smart Media, Compact Flash etc.
The usability of WinHex doesn’t stop here; the application will provide users with a RAM editor that gives instant access to physical RAM and the virtual memory used by your opened processes.
Calculating checksums and hashes is easy using WinHex. The application supports Checksums from 8 bits to 64 bits, CRC16, CRC32, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-256, RipeMD-128, RipeMD-160, MD4 and ed2k hash types.
The interface is well structured and provides users quick access to the most important features with one or two mouse clicks. The Hex panel will display all the info associated with each hexadecimal digit in a simpl and accessible manner.
WinHex can display various character sets including: ANSI ASCII, IBM ASCII, EBCDIC and Unicode. Converting between binary, hex ASCII, Intel Hex and Motorola S is also possible.
The built-in Data interpreter can read various data types including RAID systems and dynamic disks. The application can also automate various file editing procedures using scripts, thus accelerating routine tasks.
In the hands of professionals and computer forensics, WinHex can become a valuable instrument that can help them uncover important evidence and solve difficult cases.
