Unfortunately Borg backup can be currently used only with combination 
with ssh server.
I was thinking about USB implementation once there is a demand for it.
Will start working on this new feature, but I can't tell you exact time 
estimation. I will try to make it until ReaR 2.4 release but no promises.

Best regards
