    Hex view HDD


    i need a hex editor that can view the entire HDD. Need one that is GUI based (so i can drag with a mouse from top to bottom of a drive to make sure it is wiped).

    currently I have to wipe with either a DOS based program, or shred (in SLAX), then have to reboot the computer and load a WIN 7 PE so that I can run the HxD.exe hex editor.

    Want it all in one program. Load Slax, have it open the HEX editor and then wipe the drive. After it wipes, close that terminal screen and view the HDDs to make sure they are clean.

    SHOULD be simple.

    I tried using WINE, and running the HxD, but it doesn't reconize the drives properly.

    While you wait for any recommendations, you can find a nice comparison of various hex editors along with some of their features here:

    Quite a few of them are for Linux, so maybe you'll find one that will work for you.
