Nevertheless, hfsdebug is meant to be a useful tool in exploring HFS+ internals, as it allows you to browse, inspect, and analyze various aspects of HFS+ volumes. It can also calculate and display certain filesystem statistics. The original intent in creating hfsdebug was to quantify filesystem fragmentation under HFS+. hfsdebug is a PPC binary that also runs on Intel Macs (via Rosetta).
