help with file server app

P: n/a
I have been asked to design a file server application. Here are the
particulars:

The data that is to be served is on a 80Gbyte USB drive connected to a USB
2.0 port.

That disk needs to be used by 2 applications. One archives the disk data to
another drive, the other does timed seeks extracting 2Mbyte chunks.

Now the cruxt of the juxtaposition: The USB drive is only low-level
formatted. I am accessing it with WriteFiles and ReadFiles.
Any ideas?

I think we need more information on what exactly you're trying to do.
What application writes the data? Is the archiving real-time (like a
mirror)? What kind of synchronization is required? Where are you
running into problems?
