How did you make it work in the first place in 10.0? Autoplugging
usually does not used a named entry but a generated one like usb-0*.

I am trying to do some data recovery on dying drives and I need this.
I just got a new box from MicroStar and I am trying to make it work with
all onboard equipment. In my case it could be my drives are toast.

But I am still willing to help. I too want to use HD backup.

/dev/sda1 /media/FlashDrive auto
noauto,users,exec,sync 0 0

this plus manual mounting is how I did Flash drives in 7.2

mount /dev/sda1 /media/FlashDrive/

Why not make a script for backup and use the manual methods?
