QuickPar is a utility for creating Parity Volumes using the Reed Solomon algorithm. For details of the algorithm used, see the parchive website at SourceForge. 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

What works

Check and repair archives. Combine split files. Create PAR files. Split files

Add and Remove files to source files list. Reset source files list

What does not

Files added to the Source File list are not visible until user clicks on the row with the added file. Moving another window over the QuickPar window and then away also refreshes the Source Files window.

Stop Creating PAR files once started.

Does not always work when creating PAR files. I made several attempts with the same file. Sometimes it worked, other times it returned a "no source file" error. I suspect it has to do with either the path or filename containing invalid characters or spaces or being too long.


What was not tested

Creating PAR files with other than default parameters
Installing under WINE

Additional Comments

Creating PAR files generate a lot of "epoll_ctl: Operation not permitted" messages. Silver rating due to inconsistent PAR creation.
