Is this any use?
I use the following code on pendrives to backup their contents to the WinXP machine they are connected to
(The above just sits in BackupPendrive.bat and all you have to do is double-click on it to use it)Code:xcopy %CD%\*.* "%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\My Documents\PenDriveBackup" /c /d /e /h /i /k /y @echo . @echo . @echo . @echo . @echo . @echo . @echo Backup Finished pause
This works well with those teachers who use it but I was wondering if anyone has something better that could maybe work the other way - e.g. runs on the computer and detects PenDriveInsertion and asks to backup files (or just does it).
Is this any use?
Thanks for for link.
The blurbs a bit sparse on what it actually does
Have you used it ?
You might also want to look at PortableApps.com. It's quite neat and includes a backup option.
i was asked today to set this up thursday and bingo the instructions are here without having to ask
This is just what i have been looking for.
I know its early in the morning but I can't see a backup utility in portableapps ops:
How about setting autorun on the pen drive to run the script?
Isn't autorun a computer property and not a pendrive oneset autorun on drive
Maybe someone could script something that would change the computer settings to make it autorun next time?

Download and install at least the 'base edition', to the root of a USB drive.
Re-insert the drive. If it does not 'autorun', then open the drive and double click 'StartPortableApps.exe'
The backup utility is on the PortableApps menu which should now appear in the system tray.
Autorun is a computer property.
