lxz aims to create xz-compatible compressed files, utilizing multiple threads and liblzma. It was forked from lbzip2-0.23 and inherited the same internal structure. It supports compression only (basic features), and will lose its raison d'etre as soon as xz itself gets multithreading support.
Kheops is a PHP source repository for small to medium sized projects. Its aim is to be easy to use but powerful. It features a Web interface, automated archive creation, and other enjoyable features. It works with a Python client to allow advanced users to keep a copy of the sources updated.
uBeeDisk is a tool that copies disks and images from one to another. It was developed to archive Microbee disk images from floppy disks and to write them back to floppy, but other disk formats can be added. It is intended mainly for users of computer emulators. As the program makes use of the 'LibDsk' library there are many options for image types. The program provides some data recovery methods along with 'info' files for each disk image file created. An 'info' file contains information about the disk image, a status map of all sectors read from the disk, and an MD5 stamp of the associated disk image.
TRIXER creates catalogs of transparent file indexes. A transparent file index is an exact mirror of a directory, except that each of its file is void, thus "taking no space", while apparently having the same size of its indexed counterpart so as to describe it fully. This is accomplished by combining sparse files support with fusecompress on-the-fly compression technology. This is useful for many purposes, e.g. creating a catalog of your CD/DVD-ROM library to browse its contents without having to physically access it. The advantage of this software is that a TRIXER catalog is a plain mountable ext2 filesystem, allowing enhanced interoperability with the huge lot of available software to handle the catalog in a number of ways.
csync is a bidirectional file synchronizer for Linux. It allows the user to keep two copies of files and directories in sync. It uses uses widely adopted protocols like SMB or SFTP so that there is no need for a server component of csync. It is a user-level program which means there is no need to be a superuser. With pam_csync, it is possible to create roaming home directories.
Manent is an algorithmically strong backup and archival program. It features efficient backup to anything that looks like storage. Currently it supports plain filesystems ("directories"), FTP, and SFTP. Planned are Amazon S3, optical disks, and email (SMTP and IMAP). It can work (making progress towards finishing a backup) over a slow and unreliable network. It can offer online access to the contents of the backup. Backed up storage is completely encrypted. Backup is incremental, including changed parts of large files. Moved, renamed, and duplicate files will not require additional storage. Several computers can use the same storage for backup, automatically sharing data. Both very large and very small files are supported efficiently. Manent does not rely on timestamps of the remote system to detect changes.
JImageExplore is an image viewer with features to make navigating image archives simple. It extends JImageView, which is a plain image viewer, and adds a way to navigate directories and archive files. Thanks to TrueZIP, archive files are treated as virtual directories. JImage Explore also adds support for docking windows which will be used for supporting extensions such as multiple image display and thumbnail views.
