Abe Usher has an interesting app I’m going to try and use to back up some of my documents, it’s an app that finds all the important docs and downloads them to your iPod. But, it’s more of a security demonstration – or a now-real prop from all the action films where a hero/villian gets the supa-sekrets. Abe writes “…a proof-of-concept application that copies office documents from a Windows computer to an iPod (or other removable storage device). The point of this exercise is to demonstrate (quantitatively) how quickly data theft can occur with removable storage devices. I wrote a short application that searches for the “C:Documents and Settings” directory on a Windows computer. It then recurses through all of the subdirectories, copying all of the documents (*.doc, *.xls, *.htm, *.url, *.pdf, etc.) to the directory that it is running from.” [via] Link.
