"Would you please recommend me an auto USB backup software that supports to automatically back up computer files to a USB drive when it is plugged in? Each time I want to back up the imported camera photos on my computer to a Toshiba USB flash drive, I have to insert the drive and then copy files down. It's so troublesome."

EaseUS Todo Backup Automatic backup software for backing up files to an external USB flash drive

It's a great idea to develop a piece of backup and recovery software that supports to backup files to not only internal hard drive but also external storage drive such as USB memory stick. Or even greater if the data files can be automatically backed up to a flash drive as soon as Windows detects and recognizes it.

In fact, EaseUS Todo Backup is such a backup program to create backups on your USB drive (including disk & partition, files, games, applications, system data...) in an automatic way. What's more, it's the most user-friendly software ever that makes files to USB drive backup super easy and fast.
