Actually if you are going to be backing up the file on multiple locations at once this is not really a P2P solution this is more of a P2Multicast type setup you are talking here which is quite cool. It does not seem like it would be a very hard solution to setup. Actually no more than a couple hundred lines of code, if that. B
