Attic is a deduplicating backup program. The main goal of attic is to provide an efficient and secure way to back up data. The data deduplication technique used makes Attic suitable for daily backups since only actual changes are stored. Main features: space efficient storage, optional data encryption, and off-site backups.
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.
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.
Boar provides simple version control and backup for photos, videos, and other binary files. Boar aims to be the perfect way to make sure your most important digital information, like pictures, movies, and documents, is stored safely. It makes it possible for you to restore any or all of your files from any point in time. It makes it easy to maintain verified backups of your data, including file history. It imposes no limits on file or repository sizes. Using boar is an effective way to prevent data loss due to human or machine error.
LZHAM is a general purpose lossless data compression library that borrows many ideas from LZMA, but purposely makes several key tradeoffs that favor decompression speed over compression ratio. LZHAM's compression ratio is typically within .5% of LZMA, but decompresses 2-3 times faster. LZHAM's compressor is heavily threaded in a way that does not sacrifice compression ratio. The decompressor supports streaming and memory to memory decompression, and is designed to be particularly fast on embedded devices, handhelds, and game console platforms.
