    USB backup woes

    Hi all,

    firstly this is my first post, but I'm looking forward to being a regular poster on Edugeek from now on.

    Our school is looking into using USB sticks for examinations, which means a lot of USB sticks. One of the main headaches with this is easily backing up USB data onto a local computer. Ideally we would love a piece of software that automatically detects a USB stick's been inserted and backs it up onto a specified folder without having to bother about configuring individual USB sticks one at a time beforehand, or telling the software to do something over and over again.

    There seems to be plenty of software that does the opposite (backs up computer data onto a USB drive), but very few that does what we need. I guess the last resort would be writing our own script.

    Also if it included a mass wiping option too, that would be amazing

    If anyone has any suggestions of software which might fullfill this objective, I would be one greatful ICT technician.

    Kind Regards

    Max

    Possibly something like this? USB Detect & Launch

    You would have to email him and ask if a school counts as a business for his licence model.
