tffs is a FUSE driver that allows you to mount a hard disk from a T*PFIELD digital satellite receiver to a directory in your file system tree. Any program can access the files on your T*PFIELD disk like any other ordinary file. tffs does not support any write operations. Changing, deleting, and renaming files is not possible. tffs has only been tested with the T*PFIELD PVR4000. It may or may not work with other models.
swpartc is a simple but reliable utility for copying the data contents of one file or partition into another one and vice versa without losing a bit. The partitions must have the same size. It uses a crash recovery technique (a small back-up file), which means that even if the process is killed or the computer crashes, the user can safely resume the swapping operation later.
PhotoRescue will undelete pictures and other files lost on erased or corrupted media such as Compact Flash, Smartmedia, memory sticks, MMD, XD, MultiMedia, or Secure Digital memory cards. PhotoRescue supports the recovery of all file types, but its algorithms are particularly optimized for images in the JPEG, TIFF, GIF, and BMP formats. It also offers support for CRW, NEF, ORF, MRW, and many types of movie files. In some cases, it can rebuild pictures that have suffered minor corruptions. PhotoRescue even deals with cases where the filesystem on the media cannot be mounted.
Autodir is a tool for creating directories transparently to the applications accessing them based on information available from sources like password and group databases. It currently supports the creation of home and group directories for LDAP, NIS, and SQL Unix accounts, and uses the autofs Linux kernel module to detect directory requests. It also supports calling backup programs when specific directories are not in use so that systems need not be taken offline for backup purposes.
