Remote directory sharing
It is not always easy to remember to put all your files on a portable drive, perhaps there is just no room to bring a portable storage device. Or is there maybe a directory that needs the attention of multiple people at once? Having a common, shared file system that you can access from any computer connected to the Internet would fix these issues and add even more flexibility.
The goal is to implement file sharing that would make using and navigating non-local and local files feel the same. This is accomplished by simulating a local drive on the client computer and showing the host’s file system in the drive. Combined with streaming of files on-demand we can simulate native local files. The same application should enable a user to both share file systems from a computer and use remote file systems that are shared by other computers. An important note is that this project is not to create a server. It is a service that is supposed to be able to be used by all computers from all computers as long as they are connected to the Internet.
