Recommended utilities list

Being a Softraid user for a couple years now, i encountered many situations where just using the best practices it’s not enough. Your software is great but when you juggle many TB of data you also need other complementary software to at least be aware about, just in case.
I was wondering if we can do a pinned list somewhere on the forum with essential utilities that even Softraid devs are using every day. Just yesterday i found out about Disk Warrior from a forum post and it helped me solve a problem.
It will be helpful when you are in need, to easily have a point of reference.

Naming specifics outside of Disk Warrior is difficult, as they can vary by user requirements, tastes, etc.

Replacing damaged Directories:
Disk Warrior

Cloning (duplicating) volumes:
Carbon Copy Cloner
SuperDuper
ChronoSync
(there may be others, we have tested the three of these)

Off site Cloud backup:
Backblaze
(We like a couple of their customer policies and love how htey publish disk stats!)

Standard Maintenance:
Onyx
Cocktail
Maintenance

A lack of mention of additional utilities that may be good is not a disparagement, I don't want to be listing too many, or get too far off track!
