i hang around the end page of boards here to do some archiving. My problem is that i have this ocd-adhd (idk what it is) thing that makes it so that it's impossible to archive thing since everytime i open my own file i always worry (and believe) that i deleted something from said file or edit said file or mess it. is there any software that could help ? a software or something that could prevent me from deleting or messing or editing the file ?

 

i also have 500+ video archive. and i have other archives. this is the main reason i make the thread. atleast IBs thread archive have thing that made me less paranoid. unlike video archive. whenever i try to view the video in the archive i always be paranoid and believe that i mess/change/deleted the video or other part of the archive somehow.

 

checksums
that’s all you need really

more specific?. im clueless about computer stuff

 

I'm glad I'm not the only one that thinks like this. OP, it is paranoia. On Linux, you can just chmod -R 444 /yourarchivedirectory.

but i dont know how to use linux, what about it ?

You don't want checksums (they can be slow), you want CRC.

If you're really worried, just back up your folder. You can try time machine, or something for windows. Also sometimes the file system you use can be used to keep snapshots, like APFS, btrfs, not sure about windows.

With that, you don't have to worry about losing your data.

 

im learning to use linux

 

can i use Arc if i already get used to using MX-Linux ?

Virtual Machines is a way to find out without having to commit.
