          I am not sure about this one.  I have not used it, but I am leary of any application that doesn't list its license and mentions proprietary method of doing anything.  Not that I mind propietary, just not sure due to the lack of an obvious license.

      Have you tried archivePlus?  It's a Perl script that does exactly what you're asking for.  I mention it here in the event that someone else seaches the forums for this type of answer.  You can obtain it at  Once installed you'll need to edit the acidPlus.config file.  Instructions are in the README file.
