BleachBit deletes junk to recover disk space and maintain privacy. It rids your system of old junk including cache, Internet history, temporary files, unused locale files (better than localepurge), logs, and cookies. Designed for Linux systems, it wipes clean 50 applications including Adobe Reader, Bash, Firefox, Flash, OpenOffice.org, Opera, Real Player, Skype, and more. It shreds files so that they cannot be recovered, and it wipes free disk space to hide insecurely deleted files. It offers both a simple PyGTK GUI and a command line interface for automation.
Channel16 is graphical tool that allows users to browse the content of deleted files in an ext2 filesystem interactively, and to recover them into new files. The application also provides a search and rescue operation. This allows the user to input some exact text from the deleted file, which the program uses to search through all deleted inodes. Channel16 uses the low-level methods provided by e2fsprogs. The front end is implemented with Java Swing, and Java Native Interface (JNI) is used to bridge between Java and the ext2fs operations.
Chiron FS is a FUSE based filesystem that implements replication at the filesystem level like RAID 1 does at the device level. The replicated filesystem may be of any kind you want; the only requisite is that you mount it. There is no need for special configuration files; the setup is as simple as one mount command (or one line in fstab).
ClusterNFS is a set of patches for the "Universal NFS Daemon" (UNFSD) to allow multiple clients to nfs mount the same root filesystem by providing "tagged" filenames. When a client requests the file "/path/filename", the ClusterNFS server checks for the existence of files of the form "/path/filename$$TAG=value$$". If such a file exists and the client has a matching value for KEY, this file is returned. If the client does not have a matching value or no such file exists, the file request proceeds as normal. Currently supported keys include HOST (hostname), IP (IP number), CLIENT (matches any nfs client) and CREATE (for "tagged" creation of files).
ConvertFS is a very simple but extremely powerful toolset which allows users to convert one file system to another. It works for converting virtually any filesystem type to virtually any one as long as they are both block-oriented and supported by Linux for read/write, and as long as primary filesystem supports sparse files.
The dsnapshot script provides a high-level interface to the Linux Logical Volume Manager. It uses its block-level snapshot support to create directory snapshots. In contrast to block-level snapshots, directory snapshots resemble the file system layer. Thus, you can snapshot any directory that is on a logical volume without worrying about the actual logical volumes, mount points, and paths.
Endpoint turns a Linux machine with one or more FireWire cards into an SBP-2 device. One can use any physical block device or file (disc image) as storage. With multiple clients, each can potentially access the SBP-2 devices from a unique FireWire bus and utilize the full bandwidth of that bus.
