@1 File Upload and Download Manager is a searchable flat text database manager for managing file uploading and downloading. It lets you define your own allowable file extensions and use your own icons. The default pre-defined extensions are pdf, zip, jpg, gif, png, doc, xls, mdb, ppt, txt, rm, mov, and wmv. File sizes and record dates are displayed in search results. The database can be categorized. The maximum file size allowed can be specified.
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.
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.
