YASQ (Yet Another Script Question)

Hello,

First the usual "bravo" stuff for the SD product...

Now to the question: A (new?) feature in the advanced options of SD 2.1 is the ability to run shell scripts before and after a scheduled (for example) backup.

We've seen a lot of questions in the forum related to mounting and unmounting scripts for backup partitions. I don't ask for another version of such scripts, but...

I do intend to mount the backup partition before the backup and to unmount it after. Is the use of the built-in mechanism of SD to call shell scripts before and after the backup a good idea (diskutil -list takes some time to "wake up" my external firewire disk holding the backup partition...) to mount the backup partition before the backup is undergone?

Optional question: what if my shell scripts calls some applescripts (with easier logging and error catching options, even if the applescript call shell scripts)?

Thanks in advance for any answer

M.
