    Backing up files to a flashdrive
    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.

    Maybe look into AutoMator ??
    There might be something there that you could play with ...
