On this page you find free tools which make use of the software standards supported by HDDRIVER.
DISKUS (German only) is a versatile tool for maintaining FAT16 file systems and mass storage devices (error analysis, data recovery, sector editor, sending of SCSI commands and much more). The archive contains the detailed German manual as a PDF.
Just like HDDRUTIL and HDDRIVER's SCSI Driver, DISKUS supports 64 bit sector numbers and thus can access all sectors on media with a capacity of more than 2 TiB. Physical sector sizes up to 4096 bytes are supported.
The open XHDI standard supports applications with accessing mass storage devices. HDDRIVER fully supports the latest version XHDI 1.30. The XHDI specification is also available online as a hypertext.
HDDRIVER maps an XHDI major device ID to its corresponding SCSI Driver bus ID by dividing the major device ID by 8. This provides for 8 XHDI major device IDs per SCSI Driver bus.
XHDI_MON logs XHDI calls. The sources are available on GitHub.
