Possible ? or Not.

Hi, i often transfer alot using a USB drive from work to home, and i find it very tedious everytime i need to open up the directory and copy/paste over.

I would just like to ask, if it's possible to get a program, or set my USB drive (SanDisk) in a way so that everytime i plug it into the USB port, it auto copy/paste the directory i desire.

For example, i only transfer files in the directory "C:\Documents and Settings\Bob\My Files". And when i plug the USB into the port, it will start copy/paste the files in that directory automatically, doesn't matter if it overwrites.

Thanks alot in advance.

Link explaining how for some USB drives an autorun functionality can be put in. Once you have that then you could just make a batch file to do the copying once it is plugged in.
