But if you want to automatically make a copy of a plugged-in USB, they are not working well. In this case, you could try third-party backup software to copy files from USB to computer automatically when it's plugged in. And I'll introduce you to such software.

I want to give my friend some files (Non-workshop addons for GMod) but she's not too tech savvy, and I figured, instead of taking her through the boring steps, I can make it automatically move the files upon inserting the flash drive or upon double clicking the batch file (I don't mind which).
A USB hidden copier is a tool which enables you to auto copy files from USB to computer or from computer to USB. Just plug in your USB drive, and the data will be copied automatically. Such secret USB copier is of great help in following occasions:
Before you set an automatic task with the secret USB copier, it is recommended to permanently assign drive letter for the USB drive. Thus, the program can recognize your USB drive easily every time you connect it to the same computer. Follow the instructions below to secretly copy files from computer to USB drive via AOMEI Backupper:
There is a growing trend to backup files to cloud storage. Compared to a USB drive, cloud is a safer place to keep your important files because it is less subject to getting lost or infected.

AOMEI Backupper is a prime USB hidden copier you should pick. It helps you to copy files between the USB drive and the computer automatically and secretly. If you get this tool, you will find more amazing functions, such as block level incremental backup, restoring EFI partition in Windows 10 and so on.
The capacity of your external flash drive or SD card is large: 8GB, 16GB, or more. There is enough free space on the drive. You can copy the smaller files to the external drive just fine. Yet, when you attempt to copy a large file (4GB or larger) to the external drive, Windows gives you an error (such as: There is not enough free space on the drive, or File too large for USB similar.) Does this sound familiar?
If you experience such a problem, most probably it's caused by the fact that your external drive or card is formatted with the FAT32 file system . This type of a file system has a built-in limitation on the size of the files that it may contain. Although the total size of the files that you can copy to a FAT32 drive could be as large as 2TB (or the physical capacity of the drive, whichever is smaller), the size of each individual file may not exceed 4GB.
In any case, how to solve the problem of copying the 4GB files? Easy: you need to replace the FAT32 file system on the drive with a more modern one, such as NTFS or exFAT . These newer file systems do not have the 4GB file size limitation! Scroll down this page for the instructions on how to change the file system.
Before continuing, open the drive in a window and make sure it's empty or does not contain any important files, because after you format a drive, all information that was on it will be erased! If there are files on the drive that you want to keep, take this opportunity to copy them over to the hard drive or some other drive.
In addition to formatting a drive with the NTFS file system, Windows also offers a way to convert a FAT32 drive to NTFS. The difference is that the conversion process would keep the existing files on the drive. See Windows Help and Support of your computer for the instructions on how to do the conversion.
P.S. Our encryption software USBCrypt can create a NTFS- or exFAT-formatted Virtual Encrypted Disk even if the host drive is formatted with FAT32. This suggests yet another solution: instead of formatting the host disk with NTFS, you can instead use USBCrypt to create a NTFS-formatted Virtual Encrypted Disk. If you do that, then in addition to breaking the 4GB file size barrier, you would also get the strong security and password protection for files you put inside of the Virtual Encrypted Disk. See the USBCrypt web page for more information or to download a free 30-day trial.
When you're working on a document or other computer file, you can always save it to your computer's hard drive. Sometimes, you may want to bring your file with you and open it on a different computer. In this lesson, we'll talk about two ways to save your files so you can access them from almost anywhere.
USB or flash drives are portable, making it easy to carry your important files and documents with you wherever you go. USB drives have different amounts of memory, or storage space. Those with more memory allow you to store more (or larger) files. It's helpful to know that photo and video files generally take up more space than written documents.
USBFlashCopy is a small Windows utility to back up your flash drives and storage cards on the fly. It runs in the background and copies files from inserted media to a safe location on your hard drive.
