I have two external drives with several partitions that I want to use for SuperDuper! clone backups. I have scheduled the backups in SuperDuper!, but would like to start them manually instead of at a specific time. It seems to me that an elegant way to do this would be to somehow keep the drives from mounting by themselves and instead mount them all on my command when I want to (with an AppleScript?) and have SD set up to start syncing when the drives are connected/mounted. This would allow me to A: Start all the backups manually with a single click. And B: Keep the drives out of the way when they are not needed. This way they won't clutter my desktop and would also be somewhat protected from unintentional alterations. The only problem is that I have not idea how to keep the drives from auto-mounting and even less of an idea how to create an AppleScript to mount them (I know literally nothing about Apple Script). Is there a simple enough way to do what I want, or is it not worth the hassle?
