Hello everyone, I have to submit my final year project this year. I don't want to make some dummy project. So, I thought of writing a image(photos) backup software in Java. I would like to know which features are useful and most needed. Guys, any other ideas instead of this backup software idea are also welcome.

Another good idea is making a Restore software for Linux. It is one of the most wanted software missing in Linux.

From Wikipedia. About the feature present in WIndows.
System Restore - Utilizes the Volume Shadow Copy service to restore the computer to a previous state or restore point. It uses the System Restore feature that was first introduced in Windows Me.

Now I understand how system restore works. But I don't know what are the critical files and folders which must be monitored and backed up. I am a Linux newbie.
