Looking for someone to code a simple, but neat looking dialog app. It will monitor a specified folder and if any files have been changed, a backup will be performed.
We will want some very specific things in it - features as well as use of certain APIs, etc.
A few initial comments:
The filesystem "change detection" Win32 apis will not work. Change detection will have to be on a timer and will interrogate certain properties to determine whether a backup is needed, etc.
We will probably want the backup functionality wrapped in an MFC class. i.e. code will be written in two "components": the engine and the front-end.
Technically, this will be a very simple app. We'll want it to look neat and efficient, and perhaps show information that makes it look more fancy than it is (like stats/progress info/etc)
We may like to have an option: Backup to zip file. I don't expect the coder to create this functionality. We'd only go for this option if the libararies were available from sites such as [url removed, login to view]
