I want to setup a raspberry pi that I can leave powered on long term in my garage. I want to plug in usb drives and have the contents automatically moved to network storage.
Reading the external storage documentation it seems that I need to setup each usb drive that I want to use ahead of time in the fstab file? Is that really the case?
The documentation says that I need to unmount the drive as well. Is this really the case? You're supposed to unmount on windows and I basically never do. I know that if it's in the middle of a copy things will go bad but if the move is complete and there are no files on the drive anymore will it be ok to just pull it out without ummounting?
