Free disk/sector editor from Microsoft

This is just a random note that I’ve actually known for quite awhile, but I figured I would post it online somewhere where others could find it. Apparently Microsoft made a disk editor thing called ‘Disk Probe’, which came in the NT Resource Kit. I had found it available to download standalone a really long time ago, but it doesn’t appear to be available anymore. However, you can find it in the Windows XP Service Pack 2 Support Tools available from Microsoft’s download website.

Its a bit weird (at least, the NT version was), but its pretty useful if you ever find yourself playing with raw disks and you need to access them from inside windows in a pinch.
