I'm looking for software does the following, I have no idea how else to describe it:
I have a couple external hard drives, which i mostly use to store home media.
Is there a way to keep the ability to browse them while they are not corrected, of course while not being able to open the actual files.
Like having a copy of all the files and folders which is stored of the computer itself.
Primarily I want to use this to check if I have redundant files, missing some files, etc. without having to connect the hard drives.
It would also be nice (but not necessary) to use this together with programs like XMBC or any other media library software or to just even queue up actions like copy or delete (which then get executed when you connect the drive)
I don't know if anything like this is even remotely possible, I have searched for hours, but I don't know even what search terms to best use when looking for something like this.
And yes I have used NAS devices, and yes they would make my life simple, but i really have no desire to use them ATM.
Hope any of you understand what i'm babbling about and even more that one of you can point me in the right direction!
