Update: mac-robber.py, (Sun, Jun 13th)

Almost 4 years ago, I wrote a python version of mac-robber. I use it fairly regularly at $dayjob. This past week, one of my co-workers was using it, but realized that it hashes large files a little too slowly. He decided to use mac-robber.py to collect the MAC times and do the hashing separately so he could limit the hashes to to files under a certain size. That sounded reasonable, so I’ve added a switch (-s or --size). If hashing is turned on the new switch will limit the hashing to files under the given size.

To see it in action, see the next figure.

I hope others find this new feature useful. If anyone has more suggestions for new features, you can let me know via comments here, e-mail, or our contact form. The tool can be found at the same place as before:
