I wrote a program today that will read a physical drive directly. I read the first 50,000 bytes into a txt file, starting at sector zero. I see some text, but also a lot of graphics characters and symbols. I have googled what this could be, but haven't really found anything. I know its some sort of encoding of my data, but I'm not sure. My hopes are that its something that can be made sense of. I have seen some of this from assembly, however I'm still not sure what I'm looking at. I will post some of the out put below. So the question is, what is it. If someone could give me some insight or a link, I would be thankful. I was trying to take a look at the mbr and was not expecting the weird graphics. I'm mostly curious if this can be converted to something comprehensible. Thanks, Beetle Excerpt: Sorry for the excerpt being so large.
