I recently bought a Maxtor onetouch extenal USB drive 500GB for backup for
my ubuntu dapper system.
Every morning the backup script fails because it has problem in accessing
the drive. Once I manually remount(sudo umount /dev/sda1; sudo mount
/dev/sda1) the drive and restart backup it works fine.
Has anyone seen this problem before? Any workarounds for this?
--snip from /etc/fstab--
/dev/sda1 /var/backup ext3 rw 0 0
