    Closest I could get to what I want is this

    Code:
    robocopy "G:\Music\Full Albums" "\Music" /S /Z /MAXAGE:14
    Copies only files modified in the last 14 days

    This works in some instances but still copies unneeded files

    I want a method to copy files from my host computer to my USB flash drive where the only files copied are files that are new since the last transfer

    My program will update with new files only at present. The next version which I should release next week will also do files which have different modified dates (ie copy ones which have been modified since the ones currently there)

    Here's my solution, might work for you.
    I have a folder on my home PC's drive that is called "To Transfer". It has sub folders called "Music" and "Movies". Anything I need on the car pc gets put into these folders first, and the autorun.bat is set up to copy them and put them on the flash dirve. Then I move them out of that folder and put them where I want them on the home PC's hard drive. Meanwhile, the flash drive gets put in the car, another .bat gets run and all the files go where they are supposed to go. Not automatic like you are looking for, but its easy to do and works alright for me.
    Spent so far: $1,755

    I dont really want to keep track of what music is new since my last transfer and what music isnt, I just want it sorted out by the computer (may call that laziness but I call it utilization of available technology)




    Frodo: feel up to the challenge today?

    If we are talking about "syncing" and not simply copying then we are talking about both the hd and flash drive being updated so that each contains the most recent version of each file. There are many programs that can do this, but I only know of one that can be set up to do this with a single click (or double-click) and that is Unison. It is a command line program so all that you have to do is set up a script to run the command.

    Thats all well and good but as stated already I have a 512MB flash drive

    How do you propose I store 40GB on 512MB?



    Ive already stated what needs to be done, just have to figure out some way to do it
