DarGUI is a graphical frontend for the Disk ARchiving utility (DAR) that aims to make it easier and quicker to perform common backup tasks using DAR. It uses the GTK+ library, which is installed on most Linux distributions, so usually the only additional dependency is DAR. DarGUI aims to complement and enhance the command line features of DAR rather than conceal them, and to help users to learn how DAR works so that they can use it from the command line when necessary. It is written in Pascal using FreePascal and the Lazarus IDE.
Apptools is a collection of programs for accessing Applix 1616/OS disk images. It is similar to 'mtools' and 'cpmtools' for MS-DOS and CP/M disks. The tools have been tested on Applix 1616/OS floppy disk images, but should work on hard disk images. The tools are limited to reading and only work with raw disk images. The collection includes programs for listing, copying, displaying, and reporting, and all tools allow recursive and wildcard operations.
J7Z is an alternative 7-Zip GUI. 7-Zip is a high-compression file archiver designed by Igor Pavlov. Use J7Z if you want to: update existing archives quickly; backup multiple folders to a storage location; create or extract protected archives; and lessen effort by using archiving profiles and lists.
Super Flexible File Synchronizer lets you back up your data and synchronize PCs, Macs, servers, notebooks, and online storage space. You can set up as many different jobs as you need and run them manually or by using the scheduler. The software works with local hard drives and any other mounted volumes. In addition, it comes with support for FTP, SSH, HTTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, and Google Docs. You can use Zip compression and data encryption. There are powerful synchronization modes, including Standard Copying, Exact Mirror, and SmartTracking.
The file renaming utilities (renameutils for short) are a set of programs designed to make renaming of files faster and less cumbersome. qmv ("quick move") allows file names to be edited in a text editor. The names of all files in a directory are written to a text file, which is then edited by the user. The text file is read and parsed, and the changes are applied to the files. qcp copies files instead of renaming them. imv ("interactive move"), is trivial but useful when you are too lazy to type (or even complete) the name of the file to rename twice. It allows a file name to be edited in the terminal using the GNU Readline library. Similarly, icp copies files instead of renaming them.
HylaArchive is a real time or cron-based archiving script for HylaFAX. The real time part integrates into the fax receiving function and archives the incoming fax as a PDF file in a date structured directory. The cron-based part does the same but as a cron job rather than in real time.
Mail2sh makes it possible to carry out shell commands by email. Email is sent to a particular user on your host and the commands will be carried out if the user and password given matches ones in /etc/passwd. Commands are executed with the user's privileges, and combined with a PGP module ensures a certain level of security for use. Note that the system is not natively encrypted, so use of an encryption mechanism is highly recommended for security reasons.
atool is a script for managing file archives of various types (tar, tar+gzip, zip etc). The main command is aunpack, which extracts files from an archive. It overcomes the problem of extracting files from an archive without checking whether the files were located in a subdirectory or in the top directory of the archive, resulting in files scattered all over the place by first extracting to a new directory. If there was only a single file in the archive, that file is moved to the original directory. It also prevents local files from being overwritten by mistake. The other commands are apack for creating archives, als for listing files in archives, and acat for extracting files to standard out.
