    We have these devices that can store data to USB device (hard drive or Flash drive), is there an USB device that I can access over WiFI or wired connection at the same time while the USB device is plugged and being used.

    its not a PC, its an industrial Automated screwdriver that saves torque graphs for every screw it inserts. It runs some sort of proprietary OS.

    If it was a PC, it would be easy.

    I *think* that there is some software for Raspberry Pi's that allow you to plus a USB cable into the PI and and into a computer and the PI acts as a USB "device" to the computer. But then you can also still log into the PI through SMB from other computers to access the storage on the PI. I didn't look too far in to it, and it sound like the software out there was "beta" at best.

    Search for "raspberry pi USB OTG mass storage"
