I have a USB (ext4) drive connected and it's registered in /etc/fstab. It mounts at /media/Backup fine. I want to mount a specific directory on that drive using a bind / loopback mount (this is required for the backup software I'm using).

My /etc/fstab is as follows but whenever I sudo mount -a /Volumes gets mounted twice (viewing through webmin) once as a loopback (but not in use) and secondly as an additional ext4 mount with the same UID as the mount point for /media/Backup (mounted as in use).

$ cat /etc/fstab
proc            /proc           proc    defaults          0       0
/dev/mmcblk0p1  /boot           vfat    defaults          0       2
/dev/mmcblk0p2  /               ext4    defaults,noatime  0       1
# a swapfile is not a swap partition, so no using swapon|off from here on, use  dphys-swapfile swap[on|off]  for that
UUID=922878f3-259a-48f6-b9a6-69563389a354   /media/Backup   ext4    defaults    0   0
/media/Backup/_CrashPlan/Hackintosh-Pro/Volumes              /Volumes                 none    bind    0 0

I'm sure I've had this working in the past without my debian automounting an ext4. I had to reinstall my system after crashing the boot and OS partitions.

Here's a copy of dmesg but I can't seem to find any useful info from it.
