General :: Reassemble Files Split Without Enumerating All Of Parts Explicitly?

Apr 13, 2010

I used split -b 32m "file.bz2" "file.bz2.part-" to split a file and it created more than 50 parts. From googling, the way I found to reassemble the parts is to cat file.bz2.part-aa file.bz2.part-ab > file.bz2, while enumerating all the 50+ parts. Is there an easier way to reassemble the parts wherein I no longer need to list all those parts explicitly?

I'm using Fedora 12.

General :: Playing Broken Video Files (Binary Split Into 6 Parts)

May 26, 2011

Today encoders are getting smarter. They can compress Blu ray similar quality in 700MB. It seems header of video file contain info about frame rate, audio/video encoder etc. which can't be guessed. In MPEG audio , every part of file is independently playable. If a movie is binary split into 6 parts & I don't have the first part then it is unplayable.

General :: How To Remove All Files That Created N Minutes Ago

Mar 4, 2010

I guess in most cases when extracting a tar achive ,we will get a directory with the same name as the archive file but different suffix. but in some unlucky case, as I met today, after extract a tar bar I find lots of files spread in the working directory, which is really what I want to learn from you is that how can I move thoes newly created files ? I know it should be some "find plus rm" fancy approch there, but I don't know exactly how.

General :: Find Files That Have Been Accessed After They Were Created

Sep 10, 2010

With the find command it is easy to find files that have been modified or accessed within a given period. When a file is created, the acesss time is the same as the modify time. But as soon it is accessed (read), the access time changes, but the modify time does not. I need to find files that been accessed at all, ie. files which have access time newer than modify time. How do I do that?

General :: Find And List Files Created In A Particular Year?

Jan 31, 2011

How to find and list files and directories present the current directory which were created in, say, years 2005, 2006, and 2009 and then move them to some other location, for example, /backup. Yes, I need to list them and move simultaneously. We can use:


find . -mtime n {};

but that n is troublesome for me to figure out files/directories created in years 2005, 2006, and 2009, for instance. Is there any way to match exactly by Year Value rather than calulating the "n" (days * 24 Hours)?

General :: How To Skip User Created Files During RPM Upgrade

Sep 4, 2009

I am trying to create an RPM package. However when the RPM package installs, it need to skip some files that might have been created by the user after the last installation and use of the program. Is there a way to build RPM package that just skips the user created content in the installation dir.

For example:
lets say my RPM package creates the following dir and creates files required by my application, say .app files.

However the user may also create a few .xml files in the same dir. How will I package my program that will not delete the .xml files from the above dir and will just create the application files (.app files).

General :: Change Umask For Files Created In Ext2/ext3

Oct 28, 2009

I have ext3 partition mounted on /mnt/shared/ as follows


Permissions above are of the actual mounted fs.

Goal is to have all files created on the fs
1) to belong to group 'users'
2) to have this groups permissions set to rw (rwx for directories) so that all users who belong to group 'users' have full read/write access to data and everyone else to have only read access.

Now because of setgid bit (s) in group permissions every file created has group 'users' and additionally setgid bit is set for directories. Because every users umask by default (on my system) is set to 0022 all created files will have permissions 644 for ordinary files and 755 for directories.

Net result of above means that users A and B who both belong to group 'users' won't be able to modify files created by the other.

So how can I make files created on the fs to be created always with umask 0002 WITHOUT changing default umask for users that is used elsewhere (like in their home directory) ?

General :: Finding Files To Backup?

Mar 12, 2011

I have a situation where a directory has about 1.5 million files in it. On an hourly basis, I want to be able to find any files that have changed in the last hour, compress them, encrypt them and then copy them to both a local backup machine and an off site backup.

Is there any kind of utility or kernel module that creates some type of log of modified files? I know I can use find, but the search for -mtime in this directory takes quite a while and will not suffice for an hourly backup.

General :: Backup Only The Files Which Have Changed?

May 18, 2011

if there an application which does the following:

1. I have a laptop with an internal 200GB HD.

2. I run the application & it creates a list of all files (size & time-stamp) without actually storing them. Let's call this the "snapshot list".

3. I update some of the files on the laptop.

4. Now I run the application & it only copies the files which have changed on the laptop, that have different size/time-stamp from the snapshot list, onto some external media, such as a memory card. Of course, the files should be copied onto their proper location in the directory tree & not just pile up in one place.

Why is this useful? although the laptop has a 200GB HD I typically only update a small number of files, whose total size is maybe 10MB or so. If I could only backup those which have changed, I could do this with a tiny SD card instead of lugging around an external usb HD.

Ubuntu :: Burning Split Tar.gz Files To DVD?

Feb 4, 2010

I am using rsync to create rotating snapshot style backups of my web files and sending them via SSH to a remote location in order to burn them for offsite storage. This is all working perfect. The remote machine is a Windows Server 2003 which has data that I combine with my web files before burning. I have cygwin installed on the remote server in order to archive and compress the entire backup using tar. (This is not a post about cygwin, I just thought I would mention it in case anyone was wondering how I was running Linux commands after transferring it to the Windows box). After compression, the backup is over 12gb. The next step in my process is to split this tar.gz file into smaller chunks in order to burn them to DVDs. I use dual layer DVDs which are 8.5gb storage size.

I also use cygwin to split the tar.gz into multiple 2gb files using the split command. When I burn them, I only put 3 files on each disk totaling 6gb to leave some padding in case this was a problem. The burn completes and says successful, although it errors out when in verification. I have tried this multiple times and it seems to fail verification at the same point every time which leads me to believe that it has something to do with the data. I have also done tests such as creating smaller backups with completely different data and brning that to a CD-R which worked fine, so I'm convinced this process can work, I just cant get it to work in the right situation. I have also tried burning one of the 7 split files to a dual DVD which also worked fine. I'm wondering if their is a chunk of data that is causing this problem in one of the other split files?
