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.

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.

@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.

USB Flash Tools v2.10

  • Released on
  • Suggested by Andrew Lee

USB Flash Tools is a toolkit that provides several functions for flash memory, including SD or Compact Flash cards and USB thumb drives. The program helps verify reported capacity, backup and restore of a drive (with optional compression), and securely erase the contents. A variety of secure erase methods are available including free space or whole-drive wipe using either basic (zero out / pseudorandom) or high-security standards (like DoD).

Note: While more secure, more passes are progressively slower and can reduce the life of the flash memory drive.

License: Freeware/Open Source (source code included in download)
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
