I'm not sure if this will make sense but I'm having a problem.
I have an external hard disk drive that I'm using for my torrent files. It is mounted using fstab.
Now here's a problem, some times maybe because of power interruptions, my HDD is unmounted and (rarely) failed to remount. When this failure of remount happens, the torrent downloads are continued on the mount point (example: /home/user/Downloads).
My question is, is there a way to make /home/user/Downloads as read-only and then make it write-able only if the HDD is mounted?
Or any other better solutions are most welcome.
