I have multiple sources and targets - I can create a backup script for each associated source target pair

Can I combine these into a single scheduled backup?

Also can the script test if the target is mounted and put an alert requesting that it be mounted?

What happens if the target is not mounted? Does that schedule never run or can you get SD on launch to run any scheduled runs that have not been run yet?

Getting to grips with I can do - great app - many thanks

You can create settings for each source/target pair, and combine that with a copy script if you'd like: remember that a script is not volume specific -- it selects files from the files fed to you on a volume.

You can't combine multiple backups into a single schedule, but you can schedule > 1 for a given time, and we'll make them go back-to-back.

If a target is not mounted, we'll try to mount it if it's attached. Otherwise the backup will fail and move to the next run. We won't run "failed" backups: we'll just advance to the next scheduled time.
