Hadoop, an Apache Foundation project, is free, open source, and aimed at managing millions of massive files for batch processing and streaming. While Hadoop might be a lot of work to set up, and there are good alternatives to everything Hadoop does, Hadoop is a ready made package of useful things working together, creating an easier to maintain system compared to a build your own system.

Timeshift is promoted as a way to recover files for a broken system or user directory. I use Timeshift to backup everything so I can restore anything.
