Insofar as I am aware diskedit.exe is a Symantec (Norton) product.
There are several Knowledge Base articles that refer to diskedit.exe
in connection with Windows 2000 but none for Windows XP.

Check with the Symantec web site for information on the latest version
of their diskedit and whether or not it is usable with Windows XP.

Good luck

Yeah, I'm refering to Microsoft's "Diskedit" and not Norton's.

Win2000 had a "Diskedit" that was part of one of the service packs. One of
the "undocumented" and "internal use only" features of that program was that
you could use it to find which particular files are associated with
particular sectors.

I was hoping there might be one for XP.

Windows 2000 is one of the few versions of Windows that I don't have
currently installed on one machine or another. But any references I
can find to Diskedit in the Microsoft Knowledge Base all refer to the
Symantec product. Microsoft may have licensed it from Symantec for
inclusion in Windows 2000 for some reason.
