On another note, without yet seeing the software, I'd assume the Mac and Linux ports are both using FUSE. Is there a FUSE alternative for Windows yet?



Yes. We use CBFS (http://www.eldos.com/cbfs/) for Windows.

Ah, sadly nothing for a weekend hacker but nice to know it exists.

I'd guess anyone who spent time figuring out how to do Windows filesystems would want to be paid for the trauma.

Thanks for the pointer and good luck with the project, I've signed up for an invite. :)

There are a few (Google "fuse windows"). In particular, Dokan (http://dokan-dev.net/en/) seems to be a good one. The project is quite active recently.

Just wanted to point out that Dokan has its own version of SSHFS - http://dokan-dev.net/en/2010/01/18/open-source-dokan-sshfs/

There's one at http://www.eterlogic.com which at a glance looks free for non commercial use - Virtual Drive SDK.
