Backup to USB portable SSD


New Member

I am relatively new with Proxmox/Linux and have a VM on PVE 7.4-13.

A backup of the PVE is created every working day Mon-Fri.

For security reasons the daily backup should be copied to a USB portable SSD (Mon-Fri).

These SSD are changed in the morning by an auxiliary staff, so it must work automatically (mount).

I tried it with pve7-usb-automount, but failed already at the installation.

Does anyone have an idea?
