Windows Front End: Allow user to choose any number of files + directories to backup. Allow users to have multiple backups. Back-up options: incremental and time. Backups are made to remote Linux server over secure and non secure connection. Restore functions. Second part of application is File sharing We want users to mount backup as D: drive for example. View files/ backups just like local hard drive. Most isp block samba port, a work around is needed. A common work around is disabling server service in windows and using tunneling. This is not good option because server service must be running and tunneling decreases speed. Linux Back End: We have vast knowledge in linux. Backend can be determined by how front end works. This type of solution has been created by other companies before. We need ours to be in house as we can not rely on 3rd party solutions. Coder reliability is a must as this is Phase 1 of project.
