I'm not (as you'll readily see) knowledgeable with respect to how USB devices operate, hence the following question, and scenario:
Is the USB device anything like the CDROM, where when you pop in the cdrom, Windows runs the autorun (or whatever the name is) executable?
If so, then all you would have to do is to rename slurp.exe to autorun.exe (again, whatever the name is), and have Windows automatically run the program, which subsequently searches and copies all relevant files to the device. In that case, you wouldn't even have to have login access to the computer (maybe?).
Again, this shows my total ignorance wrt USB devices and how they work in Windows.
