check_writable is a Nagios plugin that checks if one or more directories are writable by checking that the supplied directory is indeed a directory, checking if the the filesystem permissions are OK, creating a temporary file, writing random data to the temporary file, and reading it back. It returns a critical status if one of the tests fails.
checkcopy is a GUI tool to copy the files and directories to some destination while creating checksums and/or verifying them. It reads all the checksum files, then reads in each file to copy it to the destination. If a checksum is present for the file, it will be verified, otherwise the checksum is written out to disk.
