View Full Version : Automount external disk before backup

03-24-2014, 08:34 AM

I would like SuperDuper to automount an externally connected (USB & Thunderbolt) disk before backup and autounmount after backup. I see that 2.7.2 has an option for autounmount after backup but don't see an option to mount before backup.

2 reasons for wanting this is:

a) remove noise from backup external drives when not in use
b) prevent the apps on the backups drive being visible in the "Open With" option

I did see an external thread around using a script to run the mount command but is that the recommended way of doing this?

It happens automatically on scheduled copies, with no settings required (the unmount will happen automatically too).
