I wouldn't need to waste space by copying the files, like the previous script.
This script moves files, and compares the sizes.
It keeps a duplicate if its less than the previous size, and puts it into a dupes folder, or to replace the current file with a bigger copy, in hopes for a 2nd chance recovery.
I hope this helps some of you who have little drive space, for recovery.

#!/usr/bin/env python """ Jason C. Rochon University of Illinois at Chicago I don't know anything about Python, dog - I'm a Perl Frog. But this is an example of a kludge to recover some data after a horrible Microsoft Windows NTFS chkdsk [usb]: /f/x/r This program will move and organize your recovered files by extension. If the destination file exists: * if size is same: deletes the currently recovered file (no wasted space) * else: moves smaller file into a duplicate sub folder (2nd chance recovery) (corruption increased file size on previous file, or current file is compressed) * if the duplicate file is the same as both the current and previous: moves same size file into duplicate sub folder (exact copy, 2nd chance recovery) Copyright (C) 2014 Jason C.
