Default Flash drives

Hello all

I am new to these forums and my question may sound a bit odd.

I have a 512mb mp3 player / flash drive. I have a program that is about 218mb in size that i would like to back up to my drive on a regular basis i.e. everday. I thought that when i bought my drive i would only need to t'fer the prgram once to it then when i wanted to backup it would only update changed files. But xp and all not liking me it doesnt it expects me to sit there and selcet no to every file i dont want to update. The folder hase around 1000 files + do it takes way to much time for me to do that......... Any help i would like it to only update the changed files or even maybee auto back up. btw the porgram is dos based.

Thanks for any help

Just find the files that you need to backup and write an autoexecuting file that automaticly copies those files. You might have to do some writing but youd only have to do it once.
There is probably another way of doing it.. I think if you use Microsofts backup utility you can specify the files that it should automaticly update, not 100% sure on that tho.
