  An error message entitled 'Backup Failed' with the text 'An operation
  is already pending' is displayed when I first plug in by external

  The fstab entry for the drive is as follows:
  /dev/disk/by-uuid/1a1374a1-4bb9-4416-b21c-9350e57b70f1 /media/thomas/Tom\040WD\040HD auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,noauto,compress=lzo,space_cache,uhelper=udisk 0 0

  I presume this is either due to both Gnome and Deja Dup attempting to
  mount the drive, or Deja Dup not waiting until the drive has been
  successfully mounted.
