CI Hex Viewer is an extensive software toolkit designed to facilitate the analysis and editing of raw binary data. The program offers a comprehensive package of instruments that enable technical specialists to work with the “unformatted” content of files, partitions, physical storage devices and their images, virtual disks or even RAID sets in a hexadecimal mode, making every operation maximally smooth and efficient.

An invaluable assistant in professional data analysis
The software embraces all the means necessary for convenient parsing of raw data: customizable structure templates, a straightforward hexadecimal viewer with abundant supplementary functionality, tools for parallel search of data and its comparison, mechanisms for automatic calculation of logical operations along with handy instruments for RAID reassembly. Such a utility and will be of much help in a wide variety of tasks, from spotting errors in data consistency to the manual reconstruction of complex storage systems.

The application presents a whole set of techniques for effortless data analysis. For instance, it can remember the selected hexadecimal field positions for instant location of the required ones and allows creating bookmarks for further references. Separate data ranges can be copied, edited, saved or written to a new file. An advanced “search and replace” function with adjustable parameters is also available for processing particular patterns while a raw data inspector will make it easier to interpret the information.

2/5
Easy-to-define structure templates

The software makes it possible to simplify operations by creating templates for binary structures. Such a template can be written for any type of files or storages and include the specified structure field parameters, particular data forms, conditions (“if”, “when”) for the corresponding file or storage structure fields, etc. The created template can be automatically assigned to all files and storages of the chosen type.

Parallel comparison of data
Parallel comparison of data Parallel comparison of data

The program makes it possible to perform a concurrent search for data fragments in multiple sources and immediately compare them to find all the matches or differences in the binary content of disks, files or their parts. As a rule, such a comparative analysis may significantly aid in resolving file corruption or performing manual reassembly of RAID systems.

4/5
Simple and safe modifications to the raw content

Using this utility, you can make the required changes to the data without affecting the original source by creating a new dedicated area for them. Multiple data sources can also be processed as a single one thanks to the auto-span instrument. Furthermore, a variety of tools are offered to simplify the editing process, including “copy”, “paste”, “append”, “truncate”, etc. On top of that, the program provides the possibility to exchange data between the source and the target storage or have logical operations performed automatically.

The software delivers versatile means for the analysis and reconstruction of RAID. Various configurations are supported, including standard levels (RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 3, RAID 5, RAID 6, JBOD), hybrid ones (RAID 10, RAID 0+1, RAID 50, etc.) and custom layouts. For disk arrays employing parity, the application can calculate it automatically.
