That's a typical problem.
Solution: create some marker file on your external HD.
Your backup script probably does the following:
1. mount external HD:
Change this to:
1. mount external HD
2. check for marker file
3a. file does not exist -> exit and return an error
3b. file exists -> rsync
Oh and please do not write below signature separators (newline, "-- "
without quotes followed by another newline).
Some mail programs (like Thunderbird) automatically strip everything
below dash dash space when replying.
You probably don't know that because you probably don't use Thunderbird,
but now you know. And now you know why a lot of people start their
signature with "-- ".
