Is it possible to connect a USB Flash Drive instead of a keyboard?

Looking back at your original post, I see you answered the questions I just asked. I would absolutely use a Raspberry Pi.

Do you need to access/view/edit specific files from a list, ie. "live access" of the flash drive data, or are you trying to grab a copy of all of the data from the remote drive and get it to a local machine?

 

If the former, try nextcloud server for Raspberry Pi. If the latter, use rsync from the command prompt or equivalent. Both options will require port forwarding on the remote router. If no port forwarding, setup an openvpn cloud server on Linnode, Vultr, or Digital Ocean, and connect both the remote Pi and your local machine to it, then connect to it over the OpenVPN interface.

I am in a remote area, I cannot trust the internet, the cell phone does not work many times. I have a way to do it with an RPI but I didn't want to dedicate myself to maintaining the operating system. But I am seeing that this system does not have good maintenance or updates so .. I think that the option of 20 dll is much better sadly

I bought them cheaper but from amazon you can buy them for 20 dll
https://www.amazon.com/Argon-Forty-Raspberry-Barebones-Audio-Video/dp/B075FRRVLR/

https://www.adafruit.com/product/3400

or you can also do the complete system as shown here:

The bad part of this is that you have to do everything by hand and give support, but in my experience of 1 week trying to get this going is that there is more support and documentation if you go for the cheap option

In rpizeroW I have it working with kernel 4.14.180-178, what I don't like is trying to update to have everything safely and having to fix what breaks, but the keycroc has kernel 3.4.39 like this that I do not win much :S

Ahh, now I understand. Thank you, but I don't have any shortage of Raspberry Pis right now. I have a 2b, a 3b, 2x 3b+, and a 4 with 4GB model. I haven't ever bothered with the W series. I haven't checked, but I suspect you can grab a older model, like the 3b or 3b+ for under $30. for the bare board. I've been able to setup a cron job to update the system in the middle of the night in past projects, when I don't want to mess with manual updates. Not as many people awake between 2 & 4 AM, and since it is automated, I don't have to be either.
