UI: automatic backup when USB drive is detected

I don’t remember if I asked for this elsewhere.

Would it be possible to have an automatic backup when a specific external hard drive is connected?

This would simplify a lot having an extra backup since you can tell someone to just plug the drive once per day/week and wait for the “all done” notification.

A notification that the backup wasn’t made in x days/weeks could be useful too.


I’m digging this feature too. Or something like Arq has - “Skip if volume is not mounted”.

Backing up external drives must be common. I’m wondering how others are dealing with this in Kopia.

I think that is definitely a userful criteria, seems like it is currently under proposal stage.
