comment Self destruct directory
Unfortunately this stupidity is just the way windows works; it won't let you delete a file that any process has open.

comment HDD working on Mac but asks to be formatted on PC
If it didn't have enough power to operate then Windows wouldn't be offering to format it. Windows offers to format it because it doesn't recognize the filesystem as fat or ntfs.

Looks like it's restore from backup time.

comment IPv4 interface number
It is not important to identify the interface; the command will figure it out based on the relevant IP addresses.

comment Detecting and preventing HFS Plus/NTFS bit rot
@hekevintran, the way you stated the question it was purely about detection, not recovery. If you want recovery too, then you want par2, which can generate extra parity that can be used to correct some errors.

comment Detecting and preventing HFS Plus/NTFS bit rot
@JakeGould, no they would not. The whole point of snapshots is that they do NOT duplicate the data and thus, take up twice the space. ZFS can tell you that the data has become corrupted but unless you configure it with a redundant raid configuration, it can't recover the data. If you are using raid, then that is what provides the backup copy that hopefully is still good, not snapshots.

Why? 160 characters is only like 3 lines of text on the page.

comment Detecting and preventing HFS Plus/NTFS bit rot
@JakeGould, snapshots won't help with that either since all of the snapshots share the same data blocks on disk if they were not modified intentionally.

@Tetsujin, not that I have seen. You might look out for "buffer size" though.

comment Can the $BadClus file hold recoverable data?
My point is that if the drive firmware corrects it, then it won't be in the bad cluster file... and conversely if chkdsk adds it to the bad cluster file, the drive firmware won't correct it.

comment Can the $BadClus file hold recoverable data?
Still not quite right... again, the drive can't try to relocate it if it is flagged in the bad cluster file. Also chkdsk /f doesn't look for bad clusters. You need /r for that, and /b to recheck clusters already in the bad cluster file.
