Here is my situation:

I need to routinely backup my school files onto a flash drive so I can take them with me and have them on hand in case I need them on my desktop or my MacBook.

I am looking for an app that will automatically backup a certain folder of my Finder every time I insert my flashdrive and every time that folder undergoes any changes while my flashdrive is present in the machine.

I already know of a few programs that will back up files according to a schedule but I need a program that will recognize my flashdrive before it begins to function.

PS. I've only had a mac for a year. I don't know how to use the command prompt for OSX so try to keep any possible solution simple.


Thank you for any help.
