I have some folders on a time capsule disk that I want to automate a weekly backup of. I thought it was supposed to automount and eject these drives now but it isn't doing that. Is this an issue unique to networked drives?

QRecall will attempt to auto-mount, and eject, the volume containing the archive. The capture assumes items to be captured are already reachable, and will simply ignore any that aren't.

There are two (simple) strategies for capturing intermittently available items. One is to create a captured action triggered by a "Capture Item Volume Connects" event schedule. This will trigger the capture action to start as soon as the volume containing the item to capture is mounted.

Another alternative is to schedule the action to run at regular intervals, but use a schedule condition to "Hold if no capture items". That will queue the action to start, but suspend it until the item(s) appear to be online.

Both of these assume that the items are occasionally mounted by you or some other process. (If they're never mounted, it's assumed there are no changes to capture.)

If you have volumes that never get mounted, you'll need to do some work. The simplest would be to write a prolog script that mounted the items to capture, then attach that script to the capture action. When the capture action starts, it will run the script, which should mount the item, and then let the capture proceed.
