Why can't you work directly on the copy on the USB drive wherever it is
located? That is, do the checkout from the work machine, take it home,
make you changes directly on copies on the external drive, take it back
to work and commit without any additional copying.

If you do want to keep an additional copy on you home computer, you
might look at a 'unision' http://www.cis.upenn.edu/~bcpierce/unison/ as
a syncronizing tool. It works like rsync but keeps track of what has
changed on each side for you.
