I also use this for clients and do not want to have to change their backup job every time they get a new USB disk (or worse, they never *tell* me they put a new disk in the rotation).
I couldn't agree more and am in a bit of a dilemma with this as I can be "CERTAIN' that the clients won't place the correct disk in. In turn there is just too much that can go wrong. Crazy! "NETGEAR"
can we PLEASE have the "USB Device - Front Port"
named as such when using Rsync. We need a backup job to be able to backup to anydisk in Front Port.

Oh dear, now that indeed is a problem if true, I have being testing with 2 X USB3 2.5" disks over last few days. So far so good. Disks do go to sleep but luckily so far have woken up for a Backup Job. I will monitor this.

I have my 2 USB Disks formatted differently to test this annoying error. It s been around for "YEARS' USB HDD1 = NTFS
- Backup fails
with the ACL_TYPE_DEFAULT: Operation not supported (95). error. USB HDD2 = EXT3
. Backup = 100% sucessful.
Annoying as it may be Just format the drives as EXT3, It backs up a lot faster as well. If you need to access the USB Data directly plugged into a PC you could use various utilities for that...... a couple mentioned here http://www.howtoforge.com/access-linux- ... om-windows.
