Distributed Internet Backup System

Since disk drives are cheap, backup should be cheap too. Of course it does not help to mirror your data by adding more disks to your own computer because a virus, fire, flood, power surge, robbery, etc. could still wipe out your local data center. Instead, you should give your files to peers (and in return store their files) so that if a catastrophe strikes your area, you can recover data from surviving peers. The Distributed Internet Backup System (DIBS) is designed to implement this vision.

It encrypts the backups with GPG.

FAQ

Edit:

I didn't notice they had a Windows version. So I guess this really shouldn't be in *NIX.

You know if you split the data into bocks of a set size, padded with random data, saved the files size and the sha1 hashes that make up the files (as well as the sha1 files used to encrypt the data) then had the system spit out the file metadata as part of that information it would be much better.. then again this looks to me like a knock off of my owner free file system before it was stolen.
