JumpStart is an application I wrote years ago but never released to the public. I wrote version v1.0 when I bought my first USB flash drive, a Lexar JumpDrive. I bought it so I could easily carry files between my home computer and various school computers I’d frequent. The problem was, I wanted something that would automatically sync the files between the jump drive and those various computers.
Well, there were plenty of sync apps out there, but nothing that would easily and automatically sync as soon as I put the drive into the USB port. I realized I could use any number of simple sync apps out there, if only I had something that would kick off the process automatically. So, I went about writing it. After a while I added some additional features and quickly arrived at the current version.
