I would like to create a virtual device from a directory i.e. you know, there's these cloud storage providers like dropbox and co and they generally have a software client and then give you access to files saved with them in a certain directory in your home directory. Now I would like to, instead being able to access the files in a directory, I would like to be able to mount it anywhere and access the files like as if they were on a device. How can I create a virtual device like this using mknod
edit 1: I would like to mount multiple of these devices together in one directory using mhddfs (http://romanrm.ru/en/mhddfs) if possible
edit 2: I am trying it out with Ubuntu One and Dropbox and I have created
~/virtcld in my home and "mounted" both cloud directories like this:
mhddfs ~/Dropbox/ ~/Ubuntu\ One/ ~/virtcld/ -o allow_other then I have created a bunch of test files in my virtualcd like
time dd if=/dev/zero of=test13.bin bs=1024 count=1000000 but once my Dropbbox is filled up, the files do not start to upload to the ubuntu One directory instead...
