I was just wondering if you could give me any advice on this dissertation project. The project is only an idea, and I would like your honest opinions whether or not it would merit being a worthy project. If you could also perhaps think of any additional functionality which could be included into the application that would be appreciated also.
The project its self is basically a recovery application which allows you to view, edit and delete files and/or folders from different partitions on a hard drive, or maybe hard drives. It would support fat16, fat32, ntfs. The application would hopefully represent files and data in an environment similar to explorer. The program will be bootable from dos, and would have to run by enabling the boot from cd option in the bios, or by another means. The main feature of the program would perhaps to be able to backup certain partitions onto cds, and allow automatic spanning etc. I dont know if there is an application like this in existence, might be norton ghost (opinions please). Any how, any input would be greatly appreciated. Oh, it will be written within a c/c++/asm compliant compiler. Possibly visual studio or borland, maybe another yet.
