Is there any way to backup all files from usb drives when plugged in?

Just now, Filip124 said:

No. I can see the source and destination but I want every USB drive that gets plugged in my PC to get backed up. Like if I get a new one in the future I don't have to add it to the backup.

For SyncBack, you have to create a profile for each drive(that I know of). In order to do that, again if you're willing to pay for it, you have to go to the "When" tab, and there will be another tab that says Insert. This will allow you to backup the drive every time it's plugged in.

SyncBack will do this for you.

Can you explain how to do it? I can't find the option.

Have you ever used it before? Bear in mind that the feature is paid, so if you don't want to pay for it, then another program will have to be found.

Ok. Thanks for your help.

No problem. There is a free trial available that you can use to see if it works for you.

I tried it and it works. As you said have to add each USB drive manually but does the job for me.
