One simply function that I always expect would land in nautilus is small utility which allow us to copy file to mounted device easily, Yeah..  a similar function like Windows. There are many ubuntu user which come from Windows, a function like this will make them feel comfortable using their new OS (Ubuntu).

There is small nautilus script which can simplify our work, this script allow us to send file to Flashdrive or other mounted device trough 'right click' menu in nautilus, this function is similar to 'send to' in windows, see following screenshot.

Nautilus Send file to mounted device
Install Nautilus Send To Script in Ubuntu
There are simple way to do as above,  first step you have to do is download the following files :
go to /home/username/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts (*replace username with yours) then copy the file you have downloaded there.

You can try it whether it well implemented or not, select a file in nautilus the right click script > send to, if you're find 'send to' in there, mean the script was well implemented to your nautilus.
