  1. Hi everyone, a few suggestions: virtual storage devices; with individual block sizes and encryption (algorithm/strength), basically special root folders that inherit those settings to all child objects. This would give the user more control over data safety & security; specialised virtual storage devices for different purposes and fields of application. locking of files/folders; when sharing large amounts of data, e.g. linux distro images or holiday picture archives (RAW) among friends, hardware errors (more common in personal, than in enterprise hardware), e.g. disk read errors, disk failures, should not be synced to peers. data integrety validation through torrent block hashes. public cache; a fraction of the local storage, as defined by the user, is made available for public distribution. an user can chose to share (still encrypted) data with the public for the benefit of relieability and availability at the cost of security, where applicable and desired. This would enhance the available storage capacity, but management of the cache could be tricky. version control; not much of an explanation needed here. devices could be configured to just hold the current version or all versions (or a predefined set of versions), based on their role within the network. one might want to configure a NAS or desktop pc to hold multiple versions, whereas mobile devices only sync the up-to-date versions. Cheers
