It looks like I have a corrupt folder in an NTFS file system. Way, way back, pre-Symantec, Norton Utilities used to have a low-level file system (FAT) viewer and editor. This came in handy when file system errors were encountered. Is there any measure I could take to view and perhaps edit the NTFS file system?

    Thanks. Will do. And I forgot all about Hiren's BootCD, which is a collection for a similar purpose. I've never had a practical purpose for it. In this particular case, the data lost is unimportant. That makes it an ideal opportunity to explore the usefulness of these file system repair tools. Seems to me there was a Linux distro as well. Might as well track it down, too.

    Winhex. The answer was Winhex (http://www.x-ways.net/winhex/). It is not just a hexadecimal editor, it is a straightforward data recovery tool.
