DFF (Digital Forensics Framework) is a simple but powerful tool with a flexible module system which will help you in your digital forensics works, including file recovery due to error or crash, evidence research and analysis, etc. DFF provides a robust architecture and some handy modules.
Duplicate Files Searcher is an application for finding and deleting duplicate files on your computer. It can also be used to calculate MD5 and SHA hashes. It has features such as manual files selection (giving the user full control over files to be deleted), byte for byte file comparison, file preview, several file comparison methods, and more.
Embedded File System (EFS) is a C++ library that allows you to create virtual file system in a single file. It can be useful when you need to create really big number of small files, as it is still fast even when you have millions of files. An encryption layer could be easily added for security.
The Extended Universal Resource Locator library provides a complete virtualization of file-like objects. How data is stored is completely transparent to the client, since the library is meant to replace java.io.File. It provides implementations for handling local files, Jar/Zip archives, and XML documents. (Implementations for CVS and FTP are available seperately.) Other storage providers can be written and plugged in. It also provides a merged filesystem implementation that allows multiple hierarchies to appear as one and to override each other in a controlled way. Other features include notification of changes to files, and support for attaching (dynamically updatable) actions to file objects.
FSFS is a secure, distributed, scalable, user-space file system that exports existing directories securely over the network, letting users store and retrieve encrypted data in a transparent way. FSFS is written as a pair of user space daemons that act as clients and servers. Servers export an existing file system (of virtually any kind) to clients over the network.
