Automatic backup start on USB storage device (HD/Pen) insertion

Post by JAD57 »

Hi,

Please confirm if it is possible to start automatically a backup job whenever a USB storage device, that is the defined source or destination device of that backup job, is inserted.

Note: the drive letter that is assigned to the external USB storage can be different each time it is inserted.

Hi,

Since Windows7, no application can be executed automatically when you plug-in a device/USB drive.
It is possible in Backup4all to trigger the backup in such a case only if you have an OTB device which is also configured to run with Backup4all in File->Options->Backup (under "Backup on demand" section).
