I agree, for me CyberShredder is a better option.

I use shredder.exe. It is less than 150kb and fast. As I work, I can move files to be deleted into a 'new folder', planted anywhere. When I am done, shredder.exe takes the 'new folder', and seconds later, it is gone. Loading individual files works fine, too.

Unicode support- partially. Author doesn't want implement fully support. Some months ago I reported about bug - program can't work with Unicode file names from command line. No answer, no fix...

MultiPar v1.2.9.9

webfork on 2 Jan 2017
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Dec 2016
  • Suggested by MarkyMark

MultiPar helps protect backups and transfers with error detection and recovery. The program looks at information from any number of files and folders to function as insurance against data loss. The program generates companion "PAR" files that are built from a percentage of the originals, using more space for greater protection (e.g. 10% of the original for already safe methods, 50% for frequent failures).

The program has a wide variety of customizations including format, processor usage, and various other tools available to the standard PAR format. For backups, it can also choose PAR size by available free space (e.g. saving a 3 gig file to a 4.7 gig DVD will mean generating a 1.7 gig PAR file).

Functional in Linux/Mac via WINE. The program supports multi-threading, multiple processors, can recurse subfolders, and functions with standard formats including PAR, PAR2, and (experimental) PAR3 formats.

@shnbwmn: the .EU site's relationship to the .JP address is discussed at length in forums.

Multiparuser on 2017-09-03 08:58

From the author of Multipar:
BEWARE: multipar . eu is a malicious spam site with altered versions of MultiPar.

You should remove all links to it to reduce the Google rating.

webfork on 2017-09-04 22:21

@Multiparuser: if you go to the page we link to when you click "website" you can see what the author has posted about the .EU mirror, which is encouraging caution. He does not call it a malicious spam site.

It doesn't produce a bit-stream copy (forensic safe). I restored a forensic safe image of a drive and then create an image with this software. I computed the hash values for the images, they don't match. I am albeit leary of this.

clement on 2010-07-25 10:07

I think to produce a forensic copy, you will need to connect the drive to a write block device. You can not use software this way to produce a forensic image.

Note 2: apart from being irritating, it kinda defies the whole purpose of data recovery...
