I have a rather extensive (read: physically burdensome) library of books I'd collected over the years that I'd like to digitize to take with me as I move on to my next adventure. I'm wondering what the best (most efficient, reliable, and economically efficient) way is to digitally preserve a large library of books as PDFs. I'm especially concerned to prevent files from becoming corrupted over time. [more inside]
Trying to retrieve some local key-value storage info from Google Chrome from 3 hours ago, from before it got erased. Is this posisble? [more inside]
Never thought I would be posting a question along these lines, but here we go. So I had an external hard disk with two partitions. One NTFS and one HFS+. The NTFS partition was empty. I wanted to use the NTFS partition with Time Machine so I used Disk Utility to reformat it HFS+. When the format had completed, yes, the NTFS partition was now HFS+ BUT the other partition had disappeared. When I looked at it in disk utility it had a name like "disk32s". [more inside]

How to twin/synch hard disks in order to avoid crying bad in case of unexpected failure and no fresh backups ready?
Does it exist for consumer use? A storage device made by two (or more) twin synched separate hard disks, one for normal use and the other one for backup just in case something goes wrong? Or a software doing the same thing with two (or more) external hard disks? [more inside]

I've recently decided to backup all of my photographs onto DVD. But I'm concerned about stuff like data recovery, scratches, etc. So I figured I could add some .par files to the DVD, to be on the safe side. Trouble is, I've never used .par files before. [more inside]

I'm trying to access some old backup CDs and can't remember what backup program I used to create them. The only thing Windows can see on the CDs is a README.txt file that says: "This disc is a backup CD. Except for this file the contents of this disc must be accessed using your backup software." The rest of the data is invisible and presumably in a proprietary backup format. I followed this advice to no avail. Anybody know what backup program I used back then?
