If I have a running Virtual Machine with qemu-kvm for comand line, it is posible to enable a USB drive in the running VM system?

For example: I want to copy a file from de Virtual Machine to a USB drive but the virtual machine is making something important than I don´t want to stop.

Not sure if you can do this with VMs started from the command line, but in virt-manager you can make USB devices available to running VMs (if not in use by the host or another guest).
