FEW: File Management for Portable Devices

Abstract : In recent years, an increasing number of portable devices with large amounts of storage have become widely used. In this paper, we present the early design of the FEW system, a system that aims to ease file management in the new mobile environment. To this end, the system will manage file replicas stored in fixed and portable storage devices. It will provide an automatic mechanism to establish new file replicas by analyzing file system activity. The system will automatically and incrementally synchronize all file replicas exploring the available network connectivity and the availability of portable storage devices. To merge concurrent updates, operational transformation techniques will be used.
