So windows autorun is dead, which is probably for the best security-wise. I've heard autorun scripts have been a security threat on Linux machines as well. However, there are still some legitimate reasons to want a USB stick to autorun. Here are some examples:

  • You have a USB drive you want to sync with local files (eg. Dropbox folder) for offline mobility.
  • The portable device has an encrypted partition you want to automount on certain machines.
  • Instant deployment of anti-malware software :)
After a little bit of google-fu, I found USBDLM which can set custom autorun drive settings on specific computers, but I was wondering if the community had any experience with other autorun hacks (registry edits, handshakes, etc) or auto-syncing a USB drive on insertion.

i havent messed with it at all but i would assume a windows map drive directive would help in this fashion and im sure a little bash script for auto mounting could be made relatively easily
