I have tried quite a number of hex editors and consider FlexHEX to be the best, all things considered. I would highly recommend it to anyone who needs a good hex editor.

I really have no bias whatsoever towards free- ware programs. I actually purchased FlexHex because I found this a better alter- native to freeware Hex Editors on the web.

There are several good hex editors out there, but the one I use is FlexHex from Heaventools. While there are many free hex editors I feel that you often get what you pay for, which is why I use a commercial one.

Why is FlexHex Better Than the Other Hex Editors Out There?

FlexHex stands out among other hex editors due to its comprehensive capabilities tailored to software developers. FlexHex provides an intuitive framework for editing operations covering all needs you may have. This powerful yet simple to understand program helps you create, modify, inspect, search and replace binary, ASCII, or Unicode data. Advanced users will value its capability to search for strings and GUIDs, calculate checksums, and navigate COM classes.

FlexHex enables you to copy and paste a gigabyte large chunk of data in a split of a second. This is significantly faster than the competing hex editors.

Like any typical hex and hdd disk editor, FlexHex enables you to inspect, generate, and modify binary files located on local disks, devices, or network shares. Unlike other hex editors, FlexHEX provides full support for NTFS files, which are based on a more complex model than FAT32 files. Specifically, FlexHEX supports sparse files and Alternate Data Streams of files across all NTFS volumes. This means you can now audit your files for the existence of Alternate Data Streams and edit hidden data that other hex editors simply cannot see!

The special Hot Tracking feature lets you see the changes made by another application to a file. With FlexHEX, you don't need to reload the same file over and over again — instead, the program swiftly detects any alterations made to the file, immediately refreshing the Edit window. This feature is automatically activated for any file opened in read-only mode.
