Hi,

a first test of REAR get's me an error:

ERROR: Could not copy files to usb location

I use the latest git version 1.13.0 on an Ubuntu 12.04 64bit system. Here
is my configuration:

OUTPUT=ISO
OUTPUT_URL=usb:///dev/disk/by-label/REAR-001
BACKUP=NETFS
NETFS_PREFIX="rear/$(uname -n)/$(date '+%Y.%m.%d_%H:%M:%S')"
BACKUP_URL=usb:///dev/disk/by-label/REAR-001

The disk was formatted by "rear format /dev/sdb" and then labelled with
"e2label /dev/sdb REAR-001". This is, because i plan to use two disks with
multiple backups.
In the logfile i can see, that the USB disk was mounted. But the
20_make_prefix_dir.sh script was not running. So the target directory does
not exists. Can anybody help me?

Thanks

Matthias
