PCDiskClone is a Linux-based bootable CD that allows cloning of computer hard drives to backup data or to migrate a system to another PC. It copies all data on the physical level with full support for IDE, SATA, SCSI, USB, and Firewire interfaces. It clones at a high speed of more than 7GB per miniute. PCDiskClone is specially programmed for external backup and computer replacement.
SpotLook is a graphical interface to Mac OS X Leopard's Spotlight desktop search engine. It features tracks, which are timelines showing results according to their date. Tracks can created, edited, and customized, and include a search scope and attributes to search for. Found items can be viewed with Quick Look or revealed in the Finder.
UnusedPkg is a diagnostic tool to search the oldest unused packages in your Linux system. UnusedPkg prints a sorted list with the size and number of days that a package has been idle. This helps you determine what packages can be manually removed to clean the system. It supports any apt-based distribution (tested on Debian and Ubuntu) and Slackware.
nntpfs is a FUSE module for mounting the data offered by NNTP servers. Read-only access to the servers is provided. The Network News Transfer Protocol or NNTP is an Internet application protocol for the distribution of news and occasionally binary files. Usenet represents the most common usage of the NNTP protocol. The Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) interface allows user application code to create its own filesystems and publish them using kernel support.
GNU xorriso creates, loads, manipulates, and writes ISO 9660 filesystem images with Rock Ridge extensions. Files can be copied in and out. The session results get written to optical media or to filesystem objects. Rather than needing external tools for ISO 9660 production and CD/DVD/BD burning, it is a static compilation of libburnia-project.org. Thus GNU xorriso depends only on fundamental operating system facilities.
Krypt is a simple application that sits in the system tray and provides easy access to the list of volumes encrypted with LUKS. It is possible to quickly decrypt, encrypt back, mount, and umount such devices. It also monitors HAL activity, and responds by showing a pop-up with password prompt. When the password is provided, KDE's media manager kicks in and does its job. Passwords for volumes can be stored either in a configuration file or in KDE Wallet.
