There is any good hex editors that can open a drive not just a single file? Something like Hex Workshop? I'm looking for something for my Computer Forensics class.

I think that wxHexEditor fits your needs.

wxHexEditor is not an ordinary hex editor, but could work as low level disk editor too. If you have problems with your HDD or partition, you can recover your data from HDD or from partition via editing sectors in raw hex. You can edit your partition tables or you could recover files from File System by hand with help of wxHexEditor. Or you might want to analyze your big binary files, partitions, devices... If you need a good reverse engineer tool like a good hex editor, you welcome. wxHexEditor could edit HDD/SDD disk devices or partitions in raw up to exabyte sizes.

You can install it with this command:

sudo apt-get install wxhexeditor

LDE - The linux disk editor, but it works mainly on Ext2/Ext3 and its using is little bit
