Permanently placing files onto a USB key

  1. Hi,

    My name is Danny. Working as a Design Engineer in Ireland, mainly invovled with 3D modelling and manufacturing.

    Our company has recently purchased a few thousand USB keys for promotional purposes. We need to permanently copy a few files onto each key. The last itme we got them supplied with the files already on, but it was a complete disaster. Fiels could be deleted and they had left out files here and there.

    Can anyone suggest a program/ method to do this?

    Thanks in advance.

    Some great info on the forums.

    I'd imagine the easiest way hardware wise would be to buy a few USB hubs.

    Not sure what third party software is out there that would make this easier on you but, you could always script a simple .bat to copy a file or two and write them to whatever drives you wanted.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Hardware is not a problem. Nice weekend job for some of the employees kids.

    Apologies for the ignorance that follows: Is it possible to lock the files using a .bat script?

    Thanks again.

    I went ahead and moved the thread for you, its a little cleaner if a mod moves the thread as opposed to creating a second thread on the same topic.
