Hello SoftLand!
i use your free fbackup to mirror/backup my family fotos and videos. Unfortunatelly foto backup is not 100% gurantee that files data would not lost, since jpeg could be corrupted and backup software would not identify that. It could be even worth - file will be corrupted, ie changed and fbackup (or perhaps any backup soft) could think that this is a new file, thus it will replace good backuped version with new corrupted file.

In order to lower risk i use "Bad Peggy" to check integrity of jpeg files. This soft checks all jpeg files for sanity and if there is even little corruption (even of 1 pixel) than it will tell me about it i would try to replace that file with backup version. but again it will work only if backup was not replaced by bad file.

Do you have plans to add integrity check into your free/paid version of Fbackup? It could be a hash verification or some sort of jpeg format sanity check or smth else. I am sure thats not too difficult to implement, but lots of users will find that helpfull.
