Applications of Microsoft's Windows and Radsoft's XPT presented side by side. Many of the application domains of Radsoft's XPT are beyond average Microsoft end use - or Microsoft software engineer use for that matter.
Windows task managers regularly leave a lot to be desired. Only the NTx version is really worthy of its name, and even then the product is weak on actual task management and fails to ferret out remote processes in a network.

Disk Probe calculates volume sizes incorrectly, confuses partitions with physical drives, cannot search backwards, or within sectors, or for binary strings. Typical Microsoft.
Diskview was good enough to get a writeup in the October 2000 newsstand copy of Windows 2000 Magazine. It does everything right: searches backwards, forwards, within sectors, for binary strings - and does it without the bugs and bloat of Disk Probe. Typical Radsoft.
Diskview is still the only professional disk editor for the PC.
