Automatic Device Backup
 
Is there any utility that will automatically backup an external device, such
as a usb flash drive, to the hard drive.... perhaps as an autoplay option?
Because that might relieve my constant paranoia that swathes of some gigantic
essay I'm working on will be mercilessly obliterated before I remember to
save.

The word processor you are using should be set to back up after every few
minutes, and the location of the saves should be set to the external drive.
