Automatic and Simple USB Backup Utility

I came across this handy USB disk drive backup software utility the other day. Tom Bell did a nice job putting this package together. The program automatically starts when the UFD is connected to the PC. Backing up your thumb drive could never be easier.

USB Backup looks for a specific configuration file – when found – it begins the auto 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.
