Taking over from Justice, this will be a utility that checks a series of files for backup specific verification rules. It can inform you when files do and do not meet these criteria so you can take action.

  • Free for personal use, computers on a domain require a licence.
  • Extensive documentation

Planned Features
• The following rules can be used:
   ? Verify a file exists
   ? Verify a file is above certain size
   ? Verify a file is around certain size (with custom deviation)
   ? Verify a file's checksum matches a specified value
   ? Verify a file has been modified  in the last x days, weeks
   ? Verify  these criteria for individual files or a file list in csv format
• Send report on failing criteria
   ? To DB
   ? To email
   ? To logfile
• License system based on domain name.
• Alway send report toggle (even when no failures)
• DcUpdater integrated
