Disclosed herein is a method of managing data in an optical disk-based archive system. In an embodiment, when data is written in an optical disk, the metadata of the optical disk may be generated and stored. When a cartridge unit is drawn from an archive system and moved to a second archive system, the metadata of all the optical disks kept in the cartridge unit may be sent to another archive system through a medium. The metadata may be sent to another archive system over, a network, or the metadata may be copied to external memory and sent to another archive system. Furthermore, when a new cartridge unit is mounted on an archive system, a compression file may be received over a network or through external memory, and the metadata of all the optical disks kept in the new cartridge unit may be restored by decompressing the compression file.

Disclosed are a method and an apparatus for transmitting power wirelessly. The apparatus for wirelessly transmitting power includes: a power converter including an inverter for converting DC power into AC power, a resonance circuit, and two sensors for extracting a message transmitted from a receiving apparatus receiving power through magnetic induction of the resonance circuit; and a controller for controlling an operation of the inverter by selectively using messages extracted by the two sensors. When the controller fails in decoding the message extracted by one of the two sensors, the controller decodes the message extracted by the other of the two sensors and controls the operation of the inverter based on the decoded message. One of the two sensors is connected to a front stage of the inverter and the other of the two sensors is connected to a rear stage of the inverter.

Disclosed are an apparatus and a method for transmitting power wirelessly. The method for transmitting power wirelessly includes: detecting whether a receiving apparatus moves while wirelessly transmitting the power to the receiving apparatus through magnetic inductive coupling; performing the magnetic inductive coupling with the receiving apparatus for each of two or more primary coils when it is detected that the receiving apparatus moves; and determining whether to change the primary coil connected with the receiving apparatus based on a result of the magnetic inductive coupling. A signal strength message received from the receiving apparatus is received and stored every primary coil magnetically inductively coupled with the receiving apparatus, and it is determined that the received apparatus is connected through a primary coil corresponding to a largest value among signal strength values included in the signal strength message.
