While Windows 7's chkdsk option to locate bad sectors (/R) will be sufficient to read most of blocks [*] from a partition, and while there are utilities that re-read a whole physical disk (like mentioned HDDScan, HDD Tune, badblocks), I strongly suggest you to use utility which would re-write your physical disk (or partition) while leaving all user data ...

This should do the trick: tar -tzf archive.tar.gz | sed 's@^//*@@' | sort -r | xargs -d '\n' rm -d If your archive contains absolute paths and you unpacked it to the absolute locations (for this you need to use the -P option of tar) you have to leave out sed. You can also leave sed out, if you are absolutely sure that there are no absolute paths in your ...

If you are running that script on a specific day and if you have access to GNU date and GNU tar (i.e. Linux) you can use something like this (I take it you're using bash, not tested on other shells): for i in {1..7}; do FOLDER=`date +%Y-%m-%d -d "$i days ago"` tar zcfv /var/tmp/${FOLDER}.tgz ${FOLDER}/ done GNU date is important as it understands ...

Are you sure these are all the archive files? Maybe you're missing a .zip or .z00 file somewhere. Or try running file on the files (using file * in their directory works), they may not be zip files at all. Could also try using cat to "paste" together all the files in the right order, and write to a file (if they're small) or pipe that straight into ...

This can be done from inside Preview.app.(My Version: 7.0 (826.4)) Basic steps are; import from scanner or open existing document in preview, and edit, then insert from scanner. I assume you have already set up a scanner and can scan documents from inside Preview.app. The steps are: Step 1: File->Import from "scanner name" --OR-- Open existing PDF/image ...

Yes, using the compression flags in the tar command directly (eg, tar czf) will reduce intermediate disk usage as it does not create any temporary uncompressed tar file, but rather uses pipes to pass the stdout of tar directly to stdin of the compression utility. Depending on how pipes are implemented on your particular system, tar might appear to be ...

Use standard .ISO format, used for CD/DVD image files. All your 4 requirements are met by the ISO format. Theres also the advantage that they can be created with quite a lot of programs (across all platforms).

Outlook's autoarchive moves stuff to PST. Is that what you really want? If you've archive-enabled a mailbox you can use retention policies in Exchange to manage how and when mailbox content is automatically shifted from the primary mailbox to the archive mailbox.

Short answer There's currently no failproof and scientifically proven way to guarantee 30+ years of cold data archival. But some projects are aiming to do that like the Rosetta Disks project of the Long Now museum, although they are still very costly and with a low data density (about 50 MB). In the meantime, you can use scientifically proven resilient ...

As far as I can understand it, you want an archive full of archives of each folder? This sounds like a good job for a batch file, which can automate these sorts of tasks. Assuming you have 7-zip installed (which you mention), this should do the trick: FOR /D %G IN ("JOB*") DO "C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" a -tzip %G_archive.zip %G "C:\Program ...
