    The command you want to use in the batch file is "xcopy /y /h /e * c:\myfolder".

    Run "xcopy /?" from the command line to see how the command works. Also, try running it manually to see how it behaves.

    You can make a program to be run every time the drive is attached by putting an autorun.inf file in the root of the drive and editing its contents so it points to your copying batch file.
