Ouch. This is one of my worries: that my files are rotting away under
me.  What I'd like is a tool that can generate backup blocks like par2
and verify them.  It looks like par2 might actualy be able to do this,
but what I'd like is some integration into photo management programs so
they'd automatically get checksummed the moment they come off the
camera, and verified every time you open it.  Does anyone know a
program that does that?

Have a nice day,
