User Guide

ADRC Hard Disk Hex Editor is a free page by page mode binary sector editor that allow you to access and edit any sector location of logical or physical data device in Windows operating system.

The tool is written with novice users in mind to access the binary contents of disk media directly.

It has a safety feature that unless the save command is activated, any changes will not take effect to prevent inadvertent loss of data.

It is advisable that before using such command, all important data must be fully backup as editing the disk directly using such Hex editor may result in permanent data loss if it is not used appropriately.
