Hi,

I am having trouble with the auto-mount feature. I schedule a Smart Update to run, I unmount (not eject) the target volume using Disk Utility. But the scheduled job always fails with the message 'SuperDuper! cannot find target volume "Clone".'

My external hard drive is a new WD Caviar Green 3TB in a Macally Firewire/USB/eSATA combo case, connected via firewire. There are two partitions, "Clone" is 2TB and SuperDuper's target volume.

Here's the detailed output from system_profiler:

Any ideas or pointers?

Dave,

That was the nicest way anyone has told me to RTFM :)

Sorry for the noise.

Honestly not meant as an RTFM - just a reference to the blog posts where I discuss the issue to save me some typing/copying & pasting. :)

I found an applescript that mounts (and un-mounts) an external disk. Coupled with a launchd agent for scheduling it's an acceptable workaround until the auto-mount issue is resolved.

I found the applescript here: http://hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20120211184732735

Instructions for creating a launchd agent are here: http://nb.nathanamy.org/2012/07/schedule-jobs-using-launchd/
