I need to find a program that can add an option to (on the right-click drag menu for example) to not just copy/move but also verify the data after the copy/move so I am 100% sure that the file has arrived safely on the new medium.
I will be using this on a server that uses a snap-shot type of redundancy raid, so I will be commiting data now and again to this software raided archive for long term storage. Any errors in the data will potentially cause problems for the other files too in the case of a raid failure.
Also I just started using a bunch of USB-to-IDE adapters in order to be able to use a lot of my old disks without having to fill the machine with crappy old IDE PCI cards. The USB adapters are great, but I just dont trust them yet (they are CHEAP...) and I also spotted a corruption a file when I did some testing earlier. Only happened once though and I was working with a really really old disk so i cant say for sure if it maybye was only the disk.
In any case - I dont care about the speed resources it takes, just point me in the direction of a program that can copy&very for me easily and reliably and il be a happy man
- Has to support Windows7
- Pretty much as to be able integrate itself in some way into explorer so its not a hassle to use. opening up a special app. each time for example would be unacceptable.
I know I have seen plenty of these kinds of programs before, but I just dont remember the names of any, and its a pretty ambigous search term when you search for "copy" or "file" on the internet heh
Hope someone can throw me some suggestions for a good, streamlined and reliable program.
