I've got a Windows-based shared webhosting account ( with arvixe.com - no admin/root access via RDP - all web control panels) which I used to use to host freelance (ASP.Net) projects for clients. Due to the recession I'm back working for a company full-time so no more freelance projects to host :-( and so have virtually unlimited disk space sitting around doing nothing.
I need an online storage/backup solution and was thinking about signing up for a MobileMe account when it occurred to me that I might be able to make use of the unused space and turn all those unused gigabyte into some kind of homegrown online storage solution.
Does anyone have any suggestions of software or techniques that I could use to this end?
I don't want to access this using only FTP and need something that could expose itself to Windows and Macs as a network drive over the web. As a base level of functionality, I'd like to be able to backup Win/Mac machines to it. And, in an ideal world, something could stream media to iPod Touch, Android phone or other client.
Any suggestions very gratefully received.
