Does anyone know of a way to copy the entire contents of a HDD including user data and program files to USB media like an external HDD or a large USB flash drive automatically and to be unnoticeable when the drive is inserted into the PC??? I cant have any software already on the computer however the flash drive would be able to install software when it is inserted. So in theory I should be able to walk up to a computer insert the flash drive and have it copy the HDD contents. (It wouldn't need encrypted files or user documents just the software and settings).
The only thing I can think of that comes close to what you are wanting would be something like Toucan, which is part of the PortableApps suite.
Like Ragnor said, it is unlikely that you would be able to just "plug and play", without at least some user interaction.
You might be able to set up a simple batch script for Toucan that will do a full copy of a HDD (it may be possible, but I haven't used Toucan enough to know), but it will most likely still require at least a little user interaction.
Thanks for the replies! It wouldn't matter if it would have the autorun dialogue but the system that i may be using would be something old like windows 2000 so i don't think that it has an autorun prompt. Will try Toucan. Thanks :)
