How to Copy to Multiple USB Drives

Save

If you have a large number of files you want to copy over to multiple USB drives, using Windows Explorer to manually transfer the files can take a long time. This is especially the case if your hard drive or USB drives process data slowly.


The best way to copy files to multiple locations is to use a special program designed to do just that. You can simply drag and drop the files into the program and it will automatically transfer the files to your USB drives for you.

  • Download and install n2ncopy. N2ncopy is a computer application that will transfer multiple files to multiple locations simultaneously.

  • Run n2ncopy, then insert your USB drives into available USB ports. Right-click "Start," then click "Explore."

  • In Windows Explorer, navigate to the files or folders you want to move. Hold down the "CTRL" button and click each file or folder you want to transfer to your USB drives.

  • Once you've finished selecting which elements you want to copy, continue holding down "CTRL," then drag and drop the files into "Elements to copy or to move."

  • Go to the first USB drive in your list of drives. Select the folder you want to copy the files to, and drag and drop the folder into the "Targets to which to copy or to move." Repeat this process for each USB drive in your computer.

  • Configure your file transfer options, then click "Do the task" to begin copying the files to the USB drives.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you want to remove a file or transfer location, click the item, then click "Remove selected."
