PAR Buddy is a free Parchive (PAR) and RAR client which makes it possible to easily queue and schedule PAR2 check/repair jobs and RAR unpacking.
PAR Buddy is especially useful when associated with PAR2 in Windows since this makes it fast and easy to queue and prioritize jobs. Another useful feature is the ability to schedule heavy PAR/RAR jobs to times where the PC is idle.
