    Soapm, you can handle it anyway you want to, but I see this whole thing as a significant security risk and privacy risk for the church and it's members, including her. You are going to have to make sure the information is there at the church and not off with her somewhere. I said my piece, you can do what you feel is right. Just remember you were looking for advice.

    BTW, I know how that "volunteer position" works; I have one myself. I haven't tried to get fired from it and I don't deal with anybody's personal information or any church financial information. It would probably be hard to get fired from my position even though I have told the pastor and deacons that they should find a backup or a replacement. My physical situation is not good and I might not be able to do this that much longer. But if they told me I needed to do my job differently than I do, I would do my best to comply with their wishes.

    You have no idea if she is voluntary, part time, full time etc.

    She could be elderly as well.

    She just needs a gentle talking to.

    Doing it your way is likely to lead to person resigning and given these jobs are hardly likely to be well paid difficult to find a replacement.

    Many companies disable usb ports.

    So yes there are techie solutions.

    Disable usbs and use a CLOUD service (oddly appropriate for a Church).

    Have some sensitivity!
    Seems she's already been gently talked to. The choice seems to be now to put up with the situation or not. My recommended solution may not be the one the OP wants to use, but this is a pretty serious situation in my view, especially a small church. Data backup is an important consideration and cloud backup is a solution to that part of the problem, but IMO it will not by itself fix the thumb drive that isn't available issue. It is a knotty problem for a small church organization; I hope he finds a solution that works for them, but whatever that turns out to be, the secretary has to be on board with it.
