Where is that file?
A x.wh file listing physical positions of file x . Physical cloud data transparency for important files
The .wh file returns on a file upload. The content lists drive serial number(s) with sectors (block addressing numbers for the new media), server, rack locations, floor and street address of that important file stored virtually. The physical location of the bits.
This file gets updated on change.
All multiple copy positions are listed. All parts of file if spread are listed.
The .wh file changes would give an indication of health of the data centre and the level care and stability given to the file. At the very least, the data centre has a condensed list of physical addresses, to start recovery, if multiple things go horribly wrong simultaneously.
Then again, the .wh file could easily be a lied. How could it be checked?
