that might be easiest that way to do it1. Am I correct I would need to have both my USB hard drives connected when setting up MSHEETDIR again from scratch, so everything gets scanned into /msheets allowing me to copy the moviesheets to the location of my MSHEETDIR
here's what I would do, put the MSHEETDIR on a thumbdrive, then it doesn't matter what hdd is connect you'll have sheets, and you could also buy a usb hub and have sheets for all drives at the same time2. But that would mean MSHEETDIR on one of the USB hard drives - so, if the other drive is attached on its own, then its moviesheets could not be found, though presumably having the MSHEETDIR USB drive attached on its own would be OK. Agreed?
it can be done, but not automatically, you'd have to create an S99user-script that would add an additional aufs brach to the union3. Is it possible to have the MSHEETDIR on both USB hard drives at the same time? My guess is that it might be technically possible, since each symlink would only point to the USB drive that contains that moviesheet (and there are no duplicates on the two USB drives) - but I'm not sure how I could achieve that, and maybe the linksheets scripts would need to be edited to allow for this?
4. Can you suggest any other way to enable the MSHEETDIR to work correctly if I attach both USB drives, and also if I attach only one of them?
my set up
usb hub with 4 hdd's and wifi adaptor
4 hdd's each contain various genre folders, which are merged using a local aufs set up
total of 4 local aufs directories involving 8 folders from 3 drives (other drive is not part of the unions and is handled normally)
with MSHEETDIR at the same time
but I keep my MSHEETDIR and root.bin and plugins, app.bin .. etc all on a thumbdrive directly attached to the WD
