Simple app that compare used flash memory space with a numbe

We are doing a contest at an event which require people to bring their usb flash drive.

There will be 5 Usb Drives to be won.

The way to win it is: if the percentage of used space from their usb drive is equal the percentage of used space in the USB Drive we give away, they keep it. However, we will input the values of these 5 Usb Drives, so they won't really have any data.

Besides this, there will be a jackpot prize, each time a user plugs the USB drive, the number of mb it has in it will sum up, so when it reaches a value previously input, that person will win a HDD external drive.

So we would need the app to be a full-size screen app, running on windows. The screen will be placed vertically so the resolution would be like widescreen but rotated 90º.

The app should

a) When it first runs, it allows 6 values to be input, the first 5 are percentages, the last one is a number that will count in megabytes.

b) after the values are input the application starts, comparing the usb drive input percentage with the first of the values.

c)The process then should go this way: the app has to...

1) Detect a USB drive has been plugged in

2) Measure the size of the USB drive and how full it is (in %)

3) Compare with the current value from the first 5 that is active

4) Display in a progress bar, and in typography this percentage.

5) Get the amount of MB inside the USB drive, and add it up to the jackpot bar

6) Eject the USB safely

d) the app should count with a way to switch between the 5 values, something like CTRL+ALT+(value number) so that when it does, it compares that value

e) the jackpot has to measure exactly the same than the 6th number, but they are all round numbers, no decimals, for example 485MB not 485,532 Mb, so if someone plugs an USB drive with 135,3 mb, then the app only sums 135 to the pot.

f) when one of the two percentages reaches 100% the app has to let it know somehow


I attach a screen of what the app screen would look like, we provide the design in PSD we only need the programming done. The black frame would be the monitor (remember its on vertical position)

Thanks for your help.
