    Well for the lower-level access to the file systems themselves, there's nothing in Qt for that, it's way of the scope of the framework.

    I'd recommend rather taking a look at the existing tools and maybe build a GUI on top of them. Bit manipulation at the filesystem level is not something you want to do without a very solid background on filesystems, virtual filesystems, device drivers, computer forensics etc.
