HxD 2.0
Freeware Hex Editor and Disk Editor.

HxD is a carefully designed and fast hex editor which, additionally to raw disk editing and modifying of main memory (RAM), handles files of any size.

The easy to use interface offers features such as searching and replacing, exporting, checksums/digests, insertion of byte patterns, a file shredder, concatenation or splitting of files, statistics and much more.

Editing works like in a text editor with a focus on a simple and task-oriented operation, as such functions were streamlined to hide differences that are purely technical.
For example, drives and memory are presented similar to a file and are shown as a whole, in contrast to a sector/region-limited view that cuts off data which potentially belongs together. Drives and memory can be edited the same way as a regular file including support for undo. In addition memory-sections define a foldable region and inaccessible sections are hidden by default.

Furthermore a lot of effort was put into making operations fast and efficient, instead of forcing you to use specialized functions for technical reasons or arbitrarily limiting file sizes. This includes a responsive interface and progress indicators for lengthy operations.


Available as a portable and installable edition
To edit the main memory
Memory sections are tagged with data-folds
Disk-Editor (Hard disks, floppy disks, ZIP-disks, USB flash drives, CDs, ...)
RAW reading and writing of disks and drives
for Win9x, WinNT and higher
Instant opening regardless of file-size
Up to 8EB; opening and editing is very fast
Liberal but safe file sharing with other programs
Flexible and fast searching/replacing for several data types
Data types: text (including Unicode), hex-values, integers and floats
Search direction: Forward, Backwards, All (starting from the beginning)
File compare (simple)
View data in Ansi, DOS, EBCDIC and Macintosh character sets
Checksum-Generator: Checksum, CRCs, Custom CRC, SHA-1, SHA-512, MD5, ...
Exporting of data to several formats
Source code (Pascal, C, Java, C#, VB.NET)
Formatted output (plain text, HTML, Richtext, TeX)
Hex files (Intel HEX, Motorola S-record)
Insertion of byte patterns
File tools
File shredder for safe file deletion
Splitting or concatenating of files
Basic data analysis (statistics)
Graphical representation of the byte/character distribution
Helps to identify the data type of a selection
Byte grouping
1, 2, 4, 8 or 16 bytes packed together into one column
"Hex only" or "text only"-modes
Progress-window for lengthy operations
Shows the remaining time
Button to cancel
Modified data is highlighted
Unlimited undo
"Find updates..."-function
Easy to use and modern interface
Goto address
Overwrite or insert mode
Cut, copy, paste insert, paste write
Clipboard support for other hex editors
Visual Studio/Visual C++, WinHex, HexWorkshop, ...
Ctrl+Shift+Number (0-9) sets a bookmark
Ctrl+Number (0-9) goes to a bookmark
Navigating to nibbles with Ctrl+Left or Ctrl+Right
Flicker free display and fast drawing

For: Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 7, 8 or 10

New: Data inspector
interprets bytes at the current caret position into various datatypes:
binary (bit sequence), integer, floats, time and date, character, GUID and disassembly (x86 and AMD64)
allows editing all types except for assembly
option to display integers in hexadecimal
option to select big/little endian byte order
property grid widget/control written from scratch
New: 64-bit version of HxD
support for RAM/virtual memory editing of other 64-bit processes
integration into 64-bit Windows Explorer context menu
New: Fully Unicode based GUI and program code
Enhanced: Disk-open window
Shows disks to non-admins to allow opening those that normal users have access to (e.g., removable USB drives) instead of always requiring to restart as admin.
Shows more information (name, hardware id, type, size) for easier identification
Sortable by columns/categories
Resizeable window
Enhanced: RAM/virtual memory open window
allows sorting, shows PID and bitness (32/64) of each process
Enhanced: Disk write handling
automatically unmount relevant partitions/volumes before writing, to avoid access errors where possible
Enhanced: Reduced locking to a minimum and adapted caching
significant code redesign and rewrite to allow for minimal file locking to enable easier sharing files with another program
less disturbing "file has changed externally" messages, at the bottom of a hex editor window
New: Import function
supported formats are: Intel Hex, Motorola S-Record and ETL Extended
Enhanced: Export function
new format: PureBasic
New: Alternating color for hex columns (configurable)
Enhanced: Compare window
option groupbox for window arrangement
option groupbox to select compare scope
New: Unified setup (includes all languages, all editions, 32/64-bitness)
Portable edition can be configured through setup, then becomes independent.
Ensures a user is not surprised when storing HxD to a write-once medium, then HxD opens for the first time and the configuration can't be changed.
Allows to create readonly config for HxD (e.g., for use on CD/DVD or USB thumb drives).
Better Windows Vista and higher support
Automatic request for admin priviledges when configuring Windows explorer context-menu
Better error handling for inaccessible disks
New file open/save windows
New: Recently opened disk images (restores bytes per sector as well)
Enhanced: Disk editor detects sectors larger than 512 byte and can access full size of a volume/disk (Windows could limit it to file system's end)
Enhanced: Allow “bytes per row” to go up to 4096 instead of just 512
New: Option to make hexadecimal numbers in editor lower case
New: Add CRC-32C as new supported checksum
Enhanced: CustomCRCSettings stored to config file
Changed: Statistics window evaluates the current selection only, or the entire file if there is no selection
Enhanced: Search window
Tab per datatype instead of a combobox
New "Search all" button (and result window)
Enhanced: Windows explorer context menu
Option to choose with entries to add, instead of adding both, "Open with HxD (readonly)" and "Open with HxD", by default
Enhanced: Update checker supports proxies that require user authentication
Enhanced: Hex Exporter adds number base when outputting offsets, e.g., "StartOffset(h): 12345678"

Babelfish and related translation tool chain significantly enhanced for easier automation, 64 bit (PE file handling), Unicode, full XML, and new Delphi version support.

Performance enhancements, flicker reduction
Many bug fixes and other refinements of code and GUI (some listed in the forums)

Rewriting or updating lots of third party libs to x64 and Unicode
Patching Delphi RTL/VCL bugs
