USB Backup looks for disconnected drive

  • My USB backup plugin works great for backups. However, when it is disconnected, the plugin executes and looks for the missing drive every 6 or so minutes. It is my understanding that this triggers the raid drives to start up, even though they are set to spindown when not accessed.

    Also, the error logs are constantly written.

    This can't be right! How to stop the unnecessary execution of the plugin?

    Once the backup is completed, the drive is unmounted by the plugin. So what you experience is not normal.

    Are you sure the backup is completed and the drive is unmounted when you unplug the drive? You can check in the GUI to see if the filesystem on the drive is unmounted.
