Software Product Description

QuickPar is a utility for creating Parity Volumes using the Reed Solomon algorithm. Parity Volumes may be used to verify that a set of files have not been corrupted, or to reconstruct damaged files (providing that you have a sufficient quantity of Parity Volumes to match the missing or damaged files). QuickPar uses the PAR version 2.0 specification.


"An alternative use for QuickPar"

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I know that this program is typically used for recovering broken files on Usenet. But I use it for a different and more useful purpose. Typically when you burn a CD/DVD you have a fair amount of unused space. This is where QuickPar comes in, I use up the remaining space with redundant data. So now if the CD/DVD gets scratched, I can still recover the important information on the CD/DVD
