TudZu 0.1.36 is considered as a convenient and useful application designed to help you backup and exchange your multimedia files with your friends and family on a private network.Major Features:Photo and video SharingWithin each group, TudZu allows you to share multimedia contents organized by album. An album my contain files of different types, such as audio records, videos an digital photos.Management of access rightsBy default, anyone in the group can visualize and subscribe to an album. However, the album owner keeps the ability to configure specific rights to limit this access only to few people in the groups.Album creationA user may provide one or several albums in each one of his groups. During the album creation process, files are simply referenced on TudZu server and for digital photos specific case, only miniatures are transferred. That\'s why, album creation is that fast.An album is made of files and folders. If the user turns on the automatic synchronization for this album, TudZu verifies daily if new photos (or videos) have been added locally in those folders or if existing files have been modified. This way, and by default, all album subscribers will automatically get updates on their own machines. Visualizing albums and subscriptionsThrough their web account or thanks to the local graphical interface, users visualize albums they have been granted the access to (including miniatures in case of digital photos). To receive album contents on their own machine, they need to subscribe. TudZu launches the download operation as soon as the receiver (subscriber\'s machine) and a potential provider are online (provider is the original source machine or any machine hosting part of album files).Moreover, and only if he wants to, a subscriber activates the automatic recovery of updates. A notification email is sent after each download of new photos (or videos).Collaborative albumContrary to standard album, all authorized group members, who have subscribed, are granted to enrich a group album content by adding their own multimedia files. That way, each one gets other member files on his machine. Album creator is the only one allowed to modify albums characteristics and especially, the access rights.Share your picasa* albumsFor Picasa users who hesitate to upload their albums online, TudZu allows you to securely share those photos with your friends. All the new added photos or the modified ones are detected and automatically sent to the authorized people in your groups.

The storage space is chosen among online machines from the group at the job start.If the backed up machine is disconnected during the job, operation is paused and replayed as soon as the machine comes back to the network. If it is the machine hosting the remote storage space which appears unavailable during the backup (disconnected, out of storage space), the job is restart with a new partner providing a valid storage space, at the point it was when the backup was interrupted.What is backed up?Each user specifies on his machine data he wants to protect, but only multimedia contents (audio records, videos and digital photos). It will be automatically and periodically backed up. Only modifications brought to the backup environment between two jobs are treated and an index of different file versions is maintained.Storage of file copiesCopies of your files are transferred to machines owned by other group members into storage spaces created for that. The content of those copies is fully encrypted, even before network transfer, using an encryption key located on your machine (we are not talking about network encryption itself). That way, storage spaces contain data blocks which are absolutely unreadable and your partners can not see file content neither file names.Recovery of lost files (restoration)Tudzu retrieves one of the copy available among online machines. Like backups, a restoration job can be interrupted, it restarts automatically when conditions are favorable again without requiring your intervention. You got a restoration report when the job is completed. Files are recovered at their original place.SecurityTudZu organizes collaboration of group member machines within a private group. All the network exchanges are secured including file transfer. At the same time, each machine is authenticated thanks to a TudZu identity which has been attributed at the time of the software installationProtection des échanges réseau (SSL)All network transfers between two machine are encrypted with best professional algorithms. This includes any request to TudZu servers and files transfer between two different user machines. Each remote connection is beforehand secured and authenticated with SSL (protocol and tools used for online banking operations).Protecting my machineAll machines recognized by TudZu have a personal digital certificate, therefore remote machines are authenticated and only machines of my group are authorized to submit connection requests.Identifying usersAccess to the local graphical interface and your TudZu web account is protected by a personal login / password information.
