Soft network applications: U disk plug and copy

Although the Internet disk is very popular nowadays, for synchronizing some important files, many friends still use the USB disk for synchronization. The conventional method is to copy files to the flash drive in computer A, then insert the flash drive in computer B, and then copy the files that need to be synchronized to computer B. This operation is not only inefficient, but also easy to miss the files. Now with the help of some third-party software, you can automatically copy files to USB flash drive.

Automatically copying files from computer to USB flash drive

If you regularly need to copy files to a USB flash drive, you can do so with AutoCopy2U. After starting the program, switch to “Source Files” and select the files that need to be synced to the USB flash drive (you can select multiple sync folders). The files in these directories will be copied automatically when the USB flash drive is inserted (Figure 1).

The program also supports settings for copying file types, time, file filtering (only files updated within a specified number of days are copied), specifying the U disk device (identified by serial number to prevent copying files when inserting any U disk), and setting it to auto-start. After completing these personalized settings, so that the next time we insert the specified U disk, the program will automatically copy the specified files to the U disk and save them according to the above settings (Figure 2).

Automatic copying of files from USB flash drive to computer

The above operation is to copy computer files to USB flash drive automatically. If you need to copy files from USB flash drive to computer automatically when inserting USB flash drive on PC B, then you can do it with USBCopyer.

After USBCopyer starts, it is minimized to the task tray by default. Right-click on the tray icon and select “Settings”, then click “Browse” in the opened settings window to set the directory where you need to save the files on the USB flash drive. Here you can also make personalized settings for the files to be copied, for example, file conflicts can be set to “Overwrite if the version is newer” so that copying will only be completed if the files on the USB drive are newer than the version of the B computer files. Copy mode select whitelist mode, so that even if the U disk to save a lot of files, we can choose to copy only the specified documents, thus greatly improving the efficiency of copying (Figure 3).

After each copy, there will be a “Disks.csv” in the installation directory of the program, which we can open to see the details of the automatically copied files, such as each copy time, partition, folder and other information (Figure 4).
