Neither USB nor hotplug provides for unplug notifications. Together
with caching, this is bound to cause data loss. Thus, you will have
to mount the filesystems with the 'sync' option, at which point in
time you might just use floppies or serial cables instead.

Or how else does this software handle unmounting?
