    • How to read usb device

      Hello everyone!
      I would like to know if there is a way to be able to read a usb device when it is connected so that you can transfer the files that are there without having to change the file system or mount it every time.
      for example, if I wanted to backup a piece of data from my portable usb hdd, how could I do?


      I hope to be in the right session and sorry for the trivial question
    • There is the USB backup plugin which might do what you want.

      When you plug in the drive, data are synced between the drive and a sharedfolder. But you cannot define the folder structure on the drive.

      If that does not work for you would have to work with udev rules to start a script to mount the drive and copy the data.
