Virtual Drive via Windows Live Messenger using Virtual Disk API Sockets

Abstract / Excerpt:

This paper discusses the possibility of a virtual drive-sharing application to be implemented on instant messengers. The idea is to share a virtual hard drive or a VHD file in a client-to-client environment using an everyday communication device — the instant messenger. Different technologies were enumerated and their principles were discussed in detail. This paper narrates, moreover, the technologies and different methodologies that were used and done to successfully implement the virtual drive sharing application. A hashing technique was also applied to add complexity to the application.
