    At least 20 bit errors, actually it's 20 files that would not match SHA1/MD5 so there is a possibility that there was more than 1 bit error per file but at least 20. PER MONTH. All drives are...

    At the beginning of the year I threw together a fast script that I posted here for others to check their arrays for bit errors in files. Since then I have both increased the number of arrays here...

    Just to add a couple comments here as things have progressed a little at least for the Linux crowd. DIF/DIX has been added into the 2.6.30+ kernels which give some additional support for data...

    Strange I'm not getting mail updates again for this forum, oh well.

    @IanB-Basically I was trying to indicate that from current data seen from research papers that errors in media when they occur...

    That is just a rough figure of 10-50% overhead depending on the block size used and since you are encoding the original file (i.e. the file is NOT usable by the application when it's encoded) you...

    the problem I saw w/ PAR (and similar tools) is that it creates a file that is non-usable by the OS until you un-wrap it plus the additional code for the RS bits. That basically means that you will...

    Yes, any reed-solomon or similar checksum type utility (par uses a reed-solomon scheme) can correct certain amounts of bit damage assuming that you have enough block groups to cover the size of the...

    Just a comment on the thread title, that this does not reduce any occurrence of bit errors, it just allows the user to detect them. Also, in that light, pretty much any tool that does file...
