Autostart retrospect from external USB HDD


Recommended Posts

It is possible to invoke a program automatically when a USB HDD is inserted, but we start Retrospect this way?


The problem with lappies is that often when the schedule is due to run the drive is not attached so we get error reports, and in some cases if the user is not paying attention a new member is selected in error.


It would be better to autorun Retrospect when the drive is loaded, thus the user can just select the defined backup.


However although I have tried this I am unable to get Retrospect to open - does anyone know if this is possible - WD securebackup autostarts from the usb drive, but its a terrible program?
