a storage volume file and directory synchronization utility.

GNU usbsync is a small but powerful console-based utility that assists you in keeping files as well as entire directory trees synchronized between a portable storage volume (such as a usb flash or thumb drive) and arbitrarily many hosts. This is accomplished by employing a special text file which is read by the usbsync program. Such a file, usually named `.usbsync', is placed in a storage volume's top-level directory and contains user-written synchronization entries.
