You

could always write a little batch file to do it, that way you could just ask them to run that. If you need any help then just ask Smile

Batch File help to Run Job

Steve,,

Thank you for the offer. Batch file yes I would need help on that. Or u can point me in the right direction and I can play with the scripting.

What the kids are going to do is place their thumbdrive into a hub and then activate the batch file that will download thier desingated data to their thumbdrive.

I have worked it out with the app and it works fine downloading data to the thumb wanted to make it real easy for the kids (and teachers)..

Sure

if you read to the help file and look under command line then there is a list of commands.

For example if you have Toucan on each of the drives and the job is called DataCopy you could write the following in notepad and save it as a .bat file and put it in the root of the drive.

CD PortableApps\Toucan\App\toucan
Toucan DataCopy

That should work, put it is straight off the top of my head so might not. Then the students could just double click on the batch file and it would run the job.
