The dump package contains both dump and restore. Dump examines files in a filesystem, determines which ones need to be backed up, and copies those files to a specified disk, tape or other storage medium. The restore command performs the inverse function of dump; it can restore a full backup of a filesystem. Subsequent incremental backups can then be layered on top of the full backup. Single files and directory subtrees may also be restored from full or partial backups.
fistgen is the FiST language code generator, used to create stackable file systems out of templates and a high-level language. This package comes with stackable file system templates for Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD. It also contains several sample file systems built using the FiST language: an encryption file system, a compression file system, and more - all of which are written as portable stackable file systems.
Squashfs is a highly compressed read-only filesystem for Linux. It uses zlib to compress files, inodes, and directories. All blocks are packed to minimize the data overhead, and block sizes of between 4K and 1M are supported. It is intended to be used for archival use, for live CDs, and for embedded systems where low overhead is needed.
CyberFusion is a system that provides secure file transfer across a LAN, a WAN, and the Internet. It offers encryption and security, reliability and guaranteed delivery, management and automation, audit and control. It offers cost-saving migration from competitor products such as Connect:Direct which is supported with useful tools. It may be used as part of a VPN, ERP, EAI, or ETL software solution for secure file transfers as well as in disaster recovery, data archive, and backup and restore operations.
phpFileManager is a complete filesystem management tool in a single file. Features: server info, directory tree, copy/move/delete/create/rename/edit/view/chmod files and folders, tar/zip/bzip/gzip, multiple uploads, shell/exec, works on Linux and Windows, PHP4/5 and Apache2 compatible, and English and Portuguese support.
Cromfs is a compressed read-only filesystem for Linux. Cromfs is best at archiving gigabytes of big files that have a lot of redundancy. It aims primarily at achieving a strong compression, even at the cost of memory and CPU time resources. It uses the LZMA compression algorithm from 7-zip and block merging.
fuse.gunzip is a filesystem for FUSE that provides transparent decompression of files. The goal is to expedite reading of files by reducing both file size and fragmentation. fuse.gunzip is not a real filesystem such as ext2 or ext3. fuse.gunzip is a virtual proxy filesystem. Compressed files appear as uncompressed when read by the kernel or processes through fuse.gunzip. Any type of file can be compressed.
Freedup finds and eliminates duplicate files by linking them, and thus reduces the amount of used disk space within one or more file systems. By default, hardlinks are used on a single device, symbolic links when the devices differ. A set of options allows you to modify the methods of file comparison, the hash functions, the linking behavior, and the reporting style. You may use batch or interactive mode. Freedup usually only considers identical files, but when comparing audio or graphics files, you may elect to ignore the tags.
