comment XFS drive unmounting on write
Seems like an over-current might have been an issue, but I'm not sure. I tweaked the backup script to generate a much smaller file (60mb vs. 800mb) and it seems to work well now. I guess the drive would just die while trying to copy over a huge file.

Yep, it's firmly connected. I'll show the log right after this error where it detects the drive again.
