Copy All USB Contents Automatically To My Computer

ghost App

New Version of USB Hidden Copier has been released. Please see here for the latest features.

This software will copy all the contents of all the USB drives that have been inserted in your computer and will save it to your hard drive.


1. It is totally invisible and masked enough in order not to be detected easily.

2. It will copy only a maximum of 8GB that is enough space  and information will not fill out all hard drive space if you can not monitor it for a long time.

3. Content is saved in a folder named as the USB Drive name so you can find easily who is the owner of USB copied.

4. It starts at computer startup.

5. First copy is made 3 minutes after computer starts and then every 10 minutes the content will be overwritten, so you will have always lastet content of that USB.

6. With it’s Control Panel you can easily manage it.

7. Content copied is saved in the directory: “C:\WINDOWS\sysbackup\”

8. The copier program is called “systemidle.exe” in order to mask it.

9. In order not to copy you own USB Drive you can create a file named “friendflag.winxp” and put it directly on your USB (this file can be also with hidden and system attributes so you will not delete it accidentally). So when the program finds this file it will not copy the drive when it is located (your USB).

  1. Ok, I accept that it can be used for other hidden tasks, but it is in your responsability if you do so!
    I just created it for my own and I thought to share it to this forum.
    You can use it for free, and at your risk.

  2. Altin actually I liked your idea behind the program. It’s a very different and new idea that I’ve seen nowhere. Just keep on improving the idea 🙂 . I would suggest you include custom save location of the USB contents in the next version.

  3. yup! i think, try to add the custom save location of the USB contents
    like sanix said, that would be good.

  4. Ok, thanks for the comments, you are right. Actually I have added something and optimized some parts of program, and I will publish version 1.1 in the next few days. Also it’s my mania to do programs user customizable. I will include yor request. Keep visiting technize to get new version.
    Have a nice day.
    >> ALTIN <<

  5. hmm…
    it is not compatible in XP SP3 is it??
    i tried on my friend’s pc which is XP SP3, but it failed… T.T

    any idea??

  6. Alfi, first thanks for informing.
    I have not tested in Vista yet, anyway it was v1.0 and I published it upon I finished it, without trying it in different platforms.
    You can try version 1.1, I have fixed some bugs there.
    It will be available soon in downloads section.
    I promise you I will do my best to make it bugs Free!
    Again thanks for the info!

    Justin, I also use WINDOWS XP SP3 and It worked fine for me.
    If you continue having problems with it, please download v1.1.
    Please let me know, and I will try to improve it in next versions.
    Thanks Justin, and I will do my best, that you will “Really Love It”!

  7. Thanks!!
    It works on vista now… 😀

    but i haven’t triend on my friend’s PC yet…

    Is there any connection because he has deepfreeze in his PC??
    we have tried to turn it off, but to no avail…
    last time doesn’t work T.T

    but i’ll test the new version (1.1) tommorow… 😀

    Thanks again Altin!! 😀

  8. Justin, thanks for informing.
    Glad that it worked for U.
    If that computer has Deep Freeze, then I think
    the content will be erased upon the computer is restarted.
    – If you save the coppied content to a disk partition that is
    not frozen by Deep Freeze, then next time the computer is restarted
    program will not start on startup, so there will be saved only the content coppied before restart!

  9. It works on vista, but only if i install it on my flash disk/Thumb drive….

    I’ve tried on my friend’s pc just now…
    and it works also… 😀 thx Altin…

    anyway, i found some problem..
    in vista, if i install it on my thumb drive, it can only copy files to the main folder e.g. “F:” but it cannot copy under subfolder e.g. “F:\New Folder”

    any idea Altin??

  10. The new version 1.1 works very well, thank you 🙂
    I think i have found a small bug, when you use it on a computer with a floppy drive, every 3 minutes the soft try to read a floppy and a message say “drive not ready”.
    Can you maybe diseable the drive A:

    Thanks again Altin 🙂

  11. Sorry, Justin, actually I think I have fixed them, but I haven’t publish it yet. I will release the fixed version soon.
    If you want, you can send me an email to
    so I can send you the fixed program immediately


    Alfi, you are right, I also have found this bug one day after publishing it. I haven’t seen it before becouse in my computer I had dissabled floppy drives.
    >> And I have fixed it immediately!

    So, can you send me an email to
    so I can send you the fixed program directly?

    Otherwise you should wait some time until I release the next version.

    Thanks Justin.
    Thanks Alfi.

    Actually I have fixed some other things on it.
    I’m testing it in many extreme situations to fix all possible bugs,
    but If someone else has the same problem, then I will release the fixed version immediately.

    • Altin I think you can start the beta testing thread in the forums where everyone can test the beta version of your software and then you can finalize and release the final version. You can also ask for the feature request so that anyone who wants a certain type of feature in the software can request via that forum post. It’s only my suggestion though. It’s up to you what you feel right.

  12. Nice program, but it has flaws.

    First of all, the program automatically closes after running a few seconds. It installs alright, but when I click on Start I see a new process “systemidle.exe” in the task manager. Then after a few seconds the process disappear and if I click on Stop it displays an error message that the program is not running.

    I’m using WinXP+SP2.

    The second problem is, the application should either minimize to the tray or hide completely. Not show itself on the taskbar.

  13. Scratchy,
    I will add the system tray option Today, but I think it is not very useful becouse you can close control panel an the coppier program will continue running in background.
    Anyway I will add this option soon. Thanks for the comment.

    -The first problem I have fixed already and it will be ready on the next relase (soon).
    -The second, I will include the option for the system tray immediately.
    Thanks for informing, Kaushik, keep visiting us and “Be Techdated with…Technize”


  14. Is it possible to get the source code? I want to help develop it a little… what language is it based on?

  15. This is a very nice program, but the only thing is that it can not copy the folders and sub folders in the flash drive. If you can do this it will be great.
    Thanks in advance.

  16. Milko,
    i actually have added an option to copy all saved
    content from computer to usb in a single click,
    and some other cool features, but my work is in progress.
    I dont’know exactly when I will finish it completely, becouse
    I’ve been very bussy this month an now yet.
    but be sure that pro version will be much more powerful!
    hope all users will understand me!

  17. I was wondering if you know of any program with which I can automatically update a file between a PC and a USB drive so that I always have the latest version of it in both of them. For example, a file in which I keep a record of the phone calls I’ve made and which I modify in many computers, but always save in my USB drive, so that when I connect it to my PC it will automatically update the PC version of it.

    Thank you

  22. Hi Enjay, please can you explain more in details what U want it to do? Do you mean you want a silent install uppon you insert your usb or what?
    I’m quite interested to hear all your oppinions so then I can fix and customize the prog in the future
    Thanks for all your comments guys.

  23. Hey altin,

  24. aha I know where is your problem; the content is coppied every 10 minutes, so your problem is probably becouse you insert the usb betwen these periods.
    But this is fixed in the next version comming soon.
    In new version the program will detect insertion of usb and then starts copying so it will not be anymore “risky”.
    Please be pattient until it is released.

    Altin this feature should be in your future releases of USB hidden copier. I highly recommend it.

  30. Hi.
    My computer worked slowly, too much mistakes and buggs. Please, help me to fix errors on my PC.
    My operation system is Windows XP.
    With best regards,

  31. @thwyban:
    yes, it is portable, but needs to install only once on the target PC because it will be running there. The “installation” is just 1 button click and takes less than 1 second.
    .-= Altin´s last blog ..Easy Download Youtube Videos =-.

  32. Hello,
    My computer worked not correctly, many mistakes and buggs. Help me, please to fix errors on my PC.
    My operation system is Win Vista.
    With best regards,

  33. Please tell me why program is Unload from memory when the CONTROL PANEL is closed … how this program is HIDDEN when it`s control panel is fully VISIBLE

  34. NO, when the control panel is closed, the program in NOT unload from memory, the program’s process is still running and working. The control panel only serves to install,uninstall,start or stop it manually. The program itself is NOT the control panel 😉

  35. Think there is a bug. Installed from usb thumbdrive. Saved it in default C:WINDOWS\sysbackup. “systemidle.exe is running in the taskmanager. as soon as i exit the control panel the systemidle.exe disappears and it will not copy.

  36. exelent program!! you can add a option to make setting of the kind of files that i want to copy!!!

  37. checked your program, my usb devices are usually drives m to p: the prog just kept saying no disk found and copied nothing

  38. I have installed this hidden copier software. But it won’t start while startup always. Every time its need to be start manually. Also is it support for Guest user?
    I mean am installed using admin user. But is it support guest user file copying to hidden copier folder.
