Save to two drives

At work I use a networked PC and like to keep a copy of my work on a USB
Stick. This requires me to remember to save any changes to 2 locations. Is
there any way to set it up to safe to the server and to my USB stick?

Yes, a batch file could do this easily.

I'm not too sure you can do it even by batch, but if it can be done,
they folks over at
alt.msdos.batch.nt will know how to get it done.

I'm not aware of any such application, but it's worth spending time at
Google for.

It would depend on your applications. You may be able to use a
script or macro from within the applications to do the double save.
If not, you could save your work to your hard drive, and run a
batch file to copy to the two locations.

Doing this sort of thing with a batch file is so easy and so basic that it's
hardly worth mentioning. Child's play!
