Backup only if disk mounted

I use a daily scheduled backup of my User data to an external Firewire disk. Since I'm using a laptop and do some travelling on some occasions the disk is not available. On these days SD will launch, give an errormessage and stay open.

Is there some way to tell SD to only launch and backup if the disk is mounted? I know that thsi means some days will not be backed up, but that's OK. Do you have to use Applescript for this?

Thanks

Sorry, no. At present, the way we determine whether the drive is there is to check, and we stay open so you know we had a problem.

You can edit the schedule when you're traveling and uncheck the schedule, then re-check it when you're back...

I have a scheduled backup which backs up my drive then puts the computer to sleep. When the drive isn't mounted and SuperDuper! tries to run a scheduled backup, does it skip over the backup with an error then put the computer to sleep?

I want to avoid a situation where it chokes when the drive isn't mounted and stays on all night...

Thanks

Nick

No, it won't put the Mac to sleep -- but it won't prevent "regular sleep" either.
