What is QuickPar?
QuickPar is a program whose main function is to enable the user to create parchives. A parchive (parity archive volume or parity volumes) is a type of forward error correction code that is utilized for file verification, specifically, to verify that the file is intact and not damaged or corrupted in any way. The software utilizes the Reed Solomon error correction algorithm to create the parity volumes.
In addition to file verification, the software is also utilized to reconstruct corrupted files, through the recovery information from the parity volumes. QuickPar utilizes the PAR2 format. The software was developed by Peter Clements and saw its initial launch in 2003. The developer designed the software to specifically run on Windows computers.
Categorized as a data recovery software program, QuickPar is distributed as closed source free software (freeware). The software is available online through the developer’s website. The latest release of the software is version 0.9.1.
The software is also distributed in different languages, including the following: English, French, German, Dutch, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Danish, Portuguese and Swedish.
