Only look, but not touch.
Change yes, but only locally.
Only my boss, but not the peers.
Where are my data?
How many copies are there of my files?
Which versions of a file do exist?
I want more - instantly.
Redundancy - but not in Europe.
Restore from your Mac - no problem.
Cloud services promise to improve this situation by making the once uploaded data centralized and accessible from everywhere. However, this method has a catch:
In order to make data available in the cloud, it first has to be uploaded there. At this point you lose self-control of your data to the service provider.
The service provider has to protect these data for access by third parties and by himself - you neither can check how he may do it nor whether it will fully meet its obligations. Do you really want to entrust such an approach for your private financial data, control data, or design data of prototypes?
Over time, the system will get to know all the data on the partitions and will store meta-information about it. This meta-information, such as locations, size, duplicate properties, and so on, are made available to the user via the virtual File Explorer.
The Virtual File Explorer contains the same functionality as known file explorer, but also offers a lot more functionality: you can delete duplicates, replace it with a reference or only put one copy of the original file to a backup location.
With other users who also use myData™ under myControl™, any files will be split, but also may be recalled the access to their own files. All data is stored encrypted exclusively by myData ™ under myControl ™.
