Project Description

I am looking for a daemon to be developed that will run on the Raspberry Pi and will monitor the USB Ports for any USB Flash Drives and then transfer the files (configurable) automatically to a configurable file location. The daemon should be able to:

A: Only copy files of a specific type to a specific location, i.e. all mp3, .wav, .flac etc etc to a specific location including file structure

B: Be able to have multiple files types specified to go to different location, i.e. audio files go to one location, video file to another location and image files to another location.

C: Option to overwrite existing files Y/N

Here is the snag.... Audio Files could have JPG images for the artwork, these must stay in the folder with the music and not be tranferred to the location for images which is purely for photos. So the server would have:

\VIDEO\MovieName\[url removed, login to view]

\AUDIO\ArtistName\AlbumName\[url removed, login to view]

\AUDIO\ArtistName\AlbumName\[url removed, login to view]

\PHOTOS\SummerHoliday\[url removed, login to view]
