    I haven't used or looked for anything like this, but if you're technical enough you could mock something up using rsync. Not certain how you'd trigger rsync to run when the USB is plugged in... you might want to post on the Windows or VB forum for ideas. Read up on rsync, though, it'll give you all the faculties you need to do incremental file transfers/updates.
