I use gnome-disk-utility to mount the external usb3 drive and then I open
a terminal running Midnight Commander to check that I am using the correct
rsync command, which command I run manually.  Not quite as automated, but
I think it is safer.

I do use a script for jigdo download of weekly ISO images, but those mount
points are on the hard drive and do not change.
