Windows 7: Folder Management Software

Folder Management Software


So I have an external hard drive and I want to set it up so that when I connect it to my laptop, all the contents of one folder are automatically moved to the hard drive. I am NOT looking to sync the two folders. I just want a software that automates the moving of files.
Any ideas/tips/suggestions?

create a autorun.inf that points to a .bat file containing a move command
Examples of using the mv command

It will work the same way with an external drive so long as you set your laptop to run the auto run instead of just opening the drive.

If you put the .bat file in the source folder command would only have to be
move *.* c:\locationtodumpfiles
No need for software for this, you can do it in about 5 minutes with notepad.
