Hard disk content search
The Search menu allows you to search a hard disk for a line and to go to a disk sector according to its absolute offset.
Selecting the Search item in the same menu will give you access to functions of searching lines in the disk being edited. (You can do the same by pressing the Ctrl + F key combination.) Search parameters are set in the Search dialog window.
To begin searching:
- A search line can be set both as a char (Text field), and numeric (hexadecimal) value (Hex field). When you type text in the Text field, it will be automatically converted to hexadecimal value in the Hex field, and vice versa.
- Check the Case sensitive parameter to consider a letter case. If you selected a search mode without letter case matching, not only the case but also elements of the above characters will be ignored for Roman character sets.
- Check the Search at sector offset parameter to search for a given line at a given offset inside the sector
- Click OK to begin searching. After the search process is finished, the current position will be moved to where a line was found, or will remain the same if no lines were found. You can search for the next line from the current position by selecting the Search again item in the Search menu or by pressing the F3 key.
