I have one or more linux-based VMs running in The Cloud, and I have data on these remote servers that I’d like to have indexed (a la oDrive’s “UnSync” style of doing this) onto my local Win PC client. This desire, however, is opposite to the way oDrive delivers it’s usual UnSync file/folder indexing: Usually, indexed data had to (at least) once resided on the client PC before it was synced and then UnSynced. So I’m asking for a new capability where I can get the same end result on my PC (oDrive’s special 0-sized files & folders) for data out in my cloud that was never on the PC in the first place.
Does this make sense?
All of this remote data is presently accessible on my desktop via remote mounts (that I’m doing into my OS environment via NetDrive2… that occasionally conflicts with the oDrive mounting drivers… but that’s another topic for another day)…
So I have access to this cloud data via these remote disk mounts… but having the oDrive-like capability to locally index these files & folders (in the oDrive 0-size style) directly into my Win PC would significantly improve my offline searching capabilities through my data assets.
