A free collection of applications and utility programs
This project serves as a collection of different free software projects that I'm working on. The major ones are currently "HFSExplorer", "DMGExtractor", and "NTFS-3G for Mac OS X".
Open source disk encryption with strong security for the Paranoid
VeraCrypt is a free disk encryption software brought to you by IDRIX (https://www.idrix.fr) and based on TrueCrypt 7.1a. It adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for system and partitions encryption making it immune to new developments in brute-force attacks. It also solves many vulnerabilities and security issues found in TrueCrypt. This enhanced security adds some delay ONLY to the opening of encrypted partitions without any performance impact to the application use phase. This is acceptable to the legitimate owner but it makes it much harder for an attacker to gain access to the encrypted data. All released files are PGP signed with key ID=0x54DDD393, available on key servers and downloadable at https://www.idrix.fr/VeraCrypt/VeraCrypt_PGP_public_key.asc VeraCrypt can mount TrueCrypt volumes. It also can convert them to VeraCrypt format. Documentation: https://www.veracrypt.fr/en/Documentation.html FAQ : https://www.veracrypt.fr/en/FAQ.html
Easy way to use the 1-wire sensors like temperature, voltage and more.
OWFS -- 1-Wire file system. Use the Dallas 1-Wire and iButton chips with standard filesystem commands. Create temperature loggers. Monitor everything. OWHTTPD -- same system, only used as a light weight web server. OWFS is also ported to embedded routers, Mac OSX and Windows. Basically you can use these inexpensive little sensors and other chips with very simple wiring to sense and control the physical environment. The interface is very flexible -- everything from a web browser, to read and writing directly to the chip's "file" to integrating with your programs -- even over the internet. There is a growing number of 1-wire sensors: temperature, voltage, humidity, light, ultraviolet, pressure, thermisters, thermocouples, programmable microcontrollers, relays, lights, LCD panels, etc.
Extends macOS via third party file systems
FUSE for macOS allows you to extend macOS's native file handling capabilities via third-party file systems. FUSE for macOS is a successor to MacFUSE, which has been used as a software building block by dozens of products, but is no longer being maintained.
The Sleuth Kit is a C++ library and collection of open source file system forensics tools that allow you to, among other things, view allocated and deleted data from NTFS, FAT, FFS, EXT2, Ext3, HFS+, and ISO9660 images.
FATSort sorts directory structures of FAT file systems
FATSort is a small utilitiy for Linux that sorts directory structures of FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32 file systems. It is written in C and can be run from the command line.
AVFS is a system, which enables all programs to look inside gzip, tar, zip, etc. files or view remote (ftp, http, dav, etc.) files, without recompiling the programs.
Fault tolerant, POSIX-compliant, network distributed filesystem
MooseFS (MFS) is a fault tolerant, highly performing, scaling-out, network distributed file system. It spreads data over several physical servers which are visible to the user as one resource. For standard file operations MooseFS mounted with FUSE acts as other Unix-alike file systems: * A hierarchical structure (directory tree) * Stores POSIX file attributes (permissions, last access and modification times) Supports special files (block and character devices, pipes and sockets) * Symbolic links (file names pointing to target files, not necessarily on MooseFS) and hard links (different names of files which refer to the same data on MooseFS) * Access to the file system can be limited based on IP address and/or password MooseFS on GitHub: https://github.com/moosefs/moosefs Source code, packages repo: https://moosefs.com/download.html Documentation: https://moosefs.com/documentation.html Recent changes: https://moosefs.com/documentation/changes-in-moosefs-3-0.html
Rezilla is a resource editor for the Macintosh (OSX). It is designed to facilitate the edition and manipulation of resources stored in the data fork or in the resource fork of a file.
An implementation of the Ext2 (Linux) filesystem for Mac OS X.
Sort files and pack them into partitions
Fpart is a tool that helps you sort file trees and pack them into bags (called "partitions"). It is developped in C and available under the BSD license. It splits a list of directories and file trees into a certain number of partitions, trying to produce partitions with the same size and number of files. It can also produce partitions with a given number of files or a limited size. Once generated, partitions are either printed as file lists to stdout (default) or to files. Those lists can then be used by third party programs. Fpart also includes a live mode, which allows it to crawl very large filesystems and produce partitions in live. Hooks are available to act on those partitions (e.g. immediatly start a transfer using rsync(1)) without having to wait for the filesystem traversal job to be finished. Used this way, fpart can be seen as a powerful data migration tool.
mac-robber is a digital forensics and incident response tool that can be used with The Sleuth Kit to create a timeline of file activity for mounted file systems.
osxutils is a collection of utilities to facilitate working with Mac OS files and interacting with the Finder from the command line, particularly file meta-data such as Finder flags, type & creator codes, icons, comments, labels and suffices/extensions.

Ever wanted to be able to open a document in an X11 application by simply double-clicking it from the Finder? By default XLaunch-O-Matic is able to open documents with gv (.ps files) gimp (.xpm files) texmacs (.tex files) and more
XCPU is a suite of tools for cluster management. It includes utilities for job starting, cluster resource management, scalable distribution of boot images as well as creation and control of virtual machines in a cluster environment.
New version of the Deleter - program with freindly Graphic User Interface for automation of files deleting, is convenient for any cleaning, - can also remove NOT empty folders.
A tool to help renaming files easily
A multifunctions software to clean up your files with ease. 2 ways are proposed to achieve this : filters and regular expressions. While filters are quick and easy to create, regex are more powerfull and versatile.
Converts disks between case sensitive and case insensitive HFS without re formatting. Supports GPT and Apple Partition Schemes. Currently does not work for boot volume and only changes first HFS+ Partition found on drive.
Idas (I Don't Accept Seconds) is a high-performance duplicate file detector. Idas plugs into your favorite Unix filter and can tell you exactly which files have been seen before, regardless of whether or not it appears with the same filename.
Java language binding for pismo file mount. Create virtual folders in java.
The NTFS-3G driver is a safe read/write NTFS driver for Linux, Mac OS X, OpenSolaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, QNX, Windows and Haiku, providing fast and POSIX handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista and Windows 7 file system
