In this paper, we describe the working mechanism of the proposed device to transfer data between two USB drives without the use of a host device i.e. a computer. In the digital age, data transfer has become the most important part of our lives. All parts of life find themselves connected by the common thread of data transmission. And to succeed and to promote the human enterprise, the need of the hour is efficient data transfer mechanisms. The proposed device tries to achieve this efficiency by minimizing the components in the data transfer process and thus optimizing it.
