Asking for a new function for sbackup (backup on mount)

Asked by frederyk on 2008-01-20

I couldn't find a place on launchpad where I can make a feature request.

I like the sbackup program on ubuntu, but it lacks a special Notebookfeature.

The problem was:

I installed a good friend after her Notebook died a Ubuntu at a used Thinkpad (was not expensive).
She writes only texts and is surfing a little bit. But her texts a very important for her, so I gave her the tip to backup it on a usb-stick and on a external-hdd.

It would be perfekt if the backup would start everytime a special partition will be mounted. (when the stick or the hdd appears (only her stick of course))
if the backup is already made it stops and if there should be made on, it should start!

I wrote a little python-script, but that is a very dirty hack!
