The 200Mb file would be nice. If you can upload it to a fairly fast

I assume you are a Windows guy. You should be able to use a utility like
WinHex, but I guess all such tools are shareware in the Windows world. :-(

I'll have a look and see if I can find a free tool for that.

Does anyone know about a free Windows tool to read raw sectors off a disk?
