The program automatically starts when the UFD is connected to the PC. Backing up your thumb drive could never be easier. backup. The USB backup will archive the information to a directory of your choice. If the config file isn’t found on your UFD then a simple guide will walk you through setup. Get USB Backup. The utility is in Beta now, so download and give him feedback. The back story for why Tom created this:
Many of us have lost work and not had a backup. I had this happen once, and now I store my work and code on a USB drive. I do not like the idea of manually backing up all the folders and files from this drive to my computer every night after University.
I was talking to a friend during a lesson, and we discussed the idea of an application that would backup the contents of our USB drives when we plug them in. I set out to research how you can detect a USB drive being inserted using Windows API. After this I set to work on writing the first release of my USB Backup application.
