Floppy disk Disk sector editor

Well, sort of. My memory of this is amazingly vague All I remember, it was white text on a black background, and it was a sort of hex editor. You could load individual files into it, or scan floppies sector by sector, edit them and re-save them. For the life of me I just can't remember its name, then again, it was almost 20 years ago. Man, I feel old

I think you booted it from a floppy but I am only 50% sure of that 'cause I had it when I had the A500 but I also used it with the A1200 but I'm not sure if I booted from the floppy or ran it from the HDD with that.

That's it, any ideas

Any suggestions will be taken seriously.

btw. If I remember right, it was in fullscreen mode only and not windowed, also, it may of been something like an 'Action Replay' tool that you booted first. Damn my memory, I just can't remember + I may be getting a little confused and joining more than one application together in my description.

It's up to you guys now

Sounds like DiskMonPro to me. No idea where you can find it these days though. Quite a nice disk monitor, used it a lot back in the early 90s.

Diskit? Text looks off-white but maybe could pass for white on a CRT. Looks like the only way to edit files is stepping through the links instead of swallowing file whole. If you're sure about that part, this isn't it.

Thanks clenched, but I'm afraid it was not Diskit I'm 100% on it being only black background and white text and used no other colours.

Didn't Fixdisk do similar things, never used it on HDs, where it was limited to perhaps 50 MB.

@Zipper
Fixdisk was a repair and salvage tool , the one I'm talking about was more of a disk snooping application and was definitely not capable of snooping HDD's from what I can remember.

Thanks anyway

I found DiskMonPro on one of my old Tooldisks. I'll attach a screenshot so you can check if it is the one you are looking for.

Yes, that looks very close Don't forget, my memory of this tool is still vague. Damn! I wished I kept the A500, A1200, Amiga hardware and all the floppies etc...

I'll attach the tooldisk with DiskMonPro, might help you to remember if it was the one you used back in the day.

@StingRay
Sorry mate! It's not that one either although probably similar and just as useful

@Boo Boo
Very similar and again, it could be very useful

It could be Drive-X, I have it on the B2000

Does files and alike, jumps to headers etc.

Just copied it off my WinUAE drive image, BIG THANKS to Toni Wilen for WinUAE and all others involved

Are we talking about StingRay's 'Aero Toolbox' 'cause if you are I can't see it Nor can I see it when I look at the disk through Dopus. Maybe it's a bit too early in the day, I did have a skinfull last night and I'm not exactly on top of the world at the moment

Although the word 'RawCopy' rings a bell, I somehow think it was a loose term some used for copying floppies anyway.

Without a screenshot or a file to try, I'll never know 'cause I can't find it anywhere and that may be due to the company still existing or someone else holding the copyright of their stuff

Edit: I've eventually found a screenshot of 'RawCopy' (you can also download it too) and it was not that 'cause it's too colourful
