I'm taking a comp sci class at my school and I have to transfer my projects from my computer at school to my computer at home using a flash drive (using a cloud service is out of the picture, their internet is way too slow). I am constantly having to copy my entire project over to the flash drive. Is there any way to copy only the files that have been changed? Or to at least avoid all the prompts to overwrite/merge?

What you are looking for is a utility for files/folders synchronization. There is many on the internet, you probably can find one that you can put on your flash drive directly and run it from there without installing it in both computers...

Or better idea, work from the Flash drive instead of local copy...

^ do not work from flash if this is your only copy - you are asking for trouble.

Edit: Make sure you eject your drive when done - do not just pull it out. If the files are being written when you pull it out - you will have BIG TROUBLE.
