That software is Tahoe-LAFS, v1.5.0.  It works fine on Windows (if  
you can get it built).  It behaves the same way as it does on all  
other platforms: you can create a gateway node using the "tahoe  
create-client" command, use the command-line tools such as "tahoe cp"  
and "tahoe backup", use the WUI, etc.  To do so, start here: http:// 
allmydata.org/source/tahoe/trunk/docs/install.html (and mentally  
prepare yourself to help us out with tickets like #756 and #781).

The other thing that Peter mentioned is "Tahoe-W32-Client": http:// 

Tahoe-W32-Client is an application that requires Tahoe-LAFS, and adds  
to it a Virtual Drive which is integrated into the Windows  
filesystem, so that you can drag and drop files into and out of Tahoe- 
LAFS using your Windows file explorer or your cmd.exe commands such  
as "cp" and "move".  Tahoe-W32-Client also comes with a GUI installer  
so that you can have the pleasure of looking at pretty colored  
windows and buttons while installing.

These facts ought to be wiki-ed up...  Maybe here: http:// 
allmydata.org/trac/tahoe-w32-client/wiki and http://allmydata.org/ 



http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe/ticket/756 # if pywin32 has been  
manually installed, setuptools still doesn't detect it
http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe/ticket/781 # wanted: Windows Packaging
