    Anyone knows any Hex Sector by Sector backing up tool? right now im using the Hexworkshop but the sectors backed up by it seem to be reversed in weird ways, and when restoring to a non-source file/device they stay reverted...

    For a hard drive/SD card/similar?

    If so then yes, you want DD.

    Originally it was a Linux/unix tool
    http://linux.die.net/man/1/dd

    There is however a windows version
    http://www.chrysocome.net/dd

    It is a bit basic for backups but it it will back up things sector by sector and restore just the same.

    Edit. Forgot to say be very careful when using it as it will happily overwrite your hard drive if you tell it to.

    HxD works fine for me when I need to pull out the good ol' Hex Editor to mess with stuff. HxD does support reading and writing to devices also.
