FATWalker – Free FAT Partition Analysis Utility

FATWalker is a simple, straightforward and free utility for analyzing and “walking through” FAT partitions on any media readable by your computer – hard disks, memory cards, USB flash drives, and floppy disks.

FATWalker takes you through the low-level structure of the file system, and lets you view deleted files, regular files, as well as detailed attributes for each file.

How does FATWalker work?


FATWalker has its own drivers for reading FAT partitions. It bypasses the Windows file system drivers and reads your disk hardware directly. The file systems it supports are FAT12, FAT16, FAT32, and exFAT (FAT64).

This program may be useful to students of computer science (or professors) who are learning about (or teaching) file systems. It is also useful for browsing deleted files, and being able to restore them, from any FAT volume.
