  • Create, verify, and repair par2 files.
  • Process multiple files with ease.

What's New

Version 2.14:

Note (from the developer): Sorry for the abandonment. It's not you, it's me. I couldn't afford to keep my website up so everything (all serial numbers) are gone. I apologize to the people who have paid in the past but I have decided to strip the program of its paid restrictions.

The developer's page is offline... currently replaced by a domain squatter who has taken the domain for it and is trying to sell it for $70. His other domain which the download link goes to is not responding. It's been over 160 days since the developer's account has shown activity on MacUpdate. It may be time to find something else. :-(

What a bummer

No more BZIP2 Support?
I hope it comes back...
If not, I will definitely be looking elsewhere.
(And I am sure others will too!)

Not to worry,
I'll add it back once I figure out two bugs related to it.

1) The expanded contents would never have an extension, so if you didn't know it beforehand, you may not be able to open the files. (Maybe I can include a .ds_store-like file that lists the extensions?)

2) Creating BZIP2s in some cases would just bring up an "INVALID ARG" error.


I think the problem may be with the 7za binary that you use for BZIP2. Why don't you try the official BZIP2 binary for compression and decompression instead of the 7za binary?

Leifertin (Developer)

Ah I didn't realize that was there. I'll read up on the manual for it and bring BZIP2 back soon.


I you are looking for a good BZip2 program, then you may try TarPit. I like TarPit a lot and it is free.

There is nothing "Ez" about this! It is the most complicated programme I have ever downloaded for the mac and has been deposited in the bin where it belongs.
