    How to recognize a dummy file?

    I have done all the steps again and still can't find the dummy file

    i'm on 3.21 this time and have tried for over 6 hours searching for the dummy

    what i'm asking for is FACTS on what exactly we are searching for?? the theories on it i have are

    1) its the first sector that breaks in pattern when image with dummy and image without dummy are compared??

    2) its a duplicate sector that repeats itself at any point through the bin file.

    3) is there a way we can export the winhex table into another prog and then make a small app to search in excel or similar, or another HEX program that has these features built in??

    Anyone who has actually found the dummy and could take an ss of example would help me out no end.

    I think you can compare it with Cygnus Hex editor

    This is the fastest and easiest hex editor available anywhere! Features include MDI interface, multi-level undo & redo, extensive drag & drop support, blazing fast and flexible search, search and replace, delete and insert characters as easily as you can in a word processor, edit files up to available virtual memory (up to 2GB). Newer features include intelligent file comparison, conversion routines, checksum calculation, import/export operations, and developers can now extend the program

    I think HHD Software Hex Editor Neo is a really good one
