Archive sort is a bash script that sorts directories into manageable 4.4GB directories for the purpose of archiving onto DVDs.
It is useful if you have several tens or hundreds of GBs of data to archive. It can also be configured to sort into 700MB directories for archiving onto CDs.
Usage: ./archive-sort [-h] [-s SIZE] [-t] [-v] SOURCE DEST
Archive files from directory DEST to new directory SOURCE in 4.4GB chunks,
or any SIZE specified by the user.
This script has not been tested extensively, so it is recommended that you make a copy of the directory you want to archive, then run the script on that directory. Always use the -t (test) option first and carefully read the output before using the script.
-h Print this help message.
-s Size of the archive media (default 4.4 GB)
-t Test run with verbose messages.
First cd to directory containing directories to be archived:
archive-sort . ../disc01
This is useful if you have several large directories under /home/user/archive, but no files. The archive directory will not be included in disc01.
If you have a directory full of lots of files, then cd to the parent directory of the directory that needs to be archived:
archive-sort archive disc01
