Thanks again for posting and suggesting! Filed this as an issue:
Pinning or following the IPNS address of drive / an app, like
/ipns/USERNAME.fission.name may also be possible, so whenever your local IPFS node is online it syncs automatically.
I’m doing some research on our cluster approach right now, for distributing IPFS nodes geographically as we discussed in chat. A local / personal node should be able to participate as well.
I currently keep a folder for every different app / drives on my machine. This of course means that files are duplicated, since they are ALSO in the (hidden) IPFS repo. So I’m thinking about how to expose that more directly. That may look more like a FUSE approach, like https://github.com/ipfs/go-ipfs/blob/53739faee019ca29e48a67a818ad56e538025dff/docs/fuse.md
