If you consider a human language is the most complex because of various speaking and writing rules, you might want to think again. Behind all visual elements and interactions between you and the computer lies a well-written piece of code which your machine needs to understand in order to provide feedback of any type. Viewing and modifying this type of data can easily be done with the help of applications like Active@ Disk Editor.

Load physical disks, partitions or disk image files

As the name suggests, the application gives you the possibility to open nearly any type of storage unit connected to your computer, such as physical disks, logical drives, as well as disk image files. Right from the start, you are prompted to select one or more data drives that are enlisted, with the possibility to view thorough specific details.

Clever code representation

The main window shouldn't pose any accommodation problems, even though mostly advanced users feel at home. Content is displayed in Hex and you can enable separate panes to view ASCII and Unicode equivalents.

What's more, the application lets you quickly navigate to nearly all sectors, even though the whole code is displayed. This is possible via a drop-down menu where you are able to select NTFS / FAT boot sector, UFS Inode, HFS+ Volume Header, Master Boot Record and more. Depending on your selection, a portion of code is highlighted for a better display.

Quickly navigate to sectors of interest

You can also take advantage of the integrated search engines that can be used in order to quickly go to a specific offset or sector. There's also an option for ANSI input that translates it into Hex and Unicode for better search results. Editing is also possible, with the feature turned off by default so you don't accidentally damage the selected drive.

A few last words

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Active@ Disk Editor manages to live up to expectations, through both the clever design and implementation of features. Sectors can easily be identified and viewed in the format type you desire, while the rich help manual quickly gets you out of sticky situations.
