Browsing Files

PartitionGuru can browse any files of partition which isn't restricted by operating system. Normally, operating system hides many files with the purpose of protecting important files and maintaining system's stable operation. When displaying files PartitionGuru, adopts a way of analyzing file system type and reading and writing disk sectors directly, which is totally unrestricted by operating system. Therefore PartitionGuru can show all the files of the partition.

By default, the right part shows partition parameters. If you click a folder on the left, then the right part will switch to its file list; also you can realize the switch by clicking "Files" on the right panel, as follows:
