[PVE-User] Automount USB Drives

This solution has worked well for me in past backup cases where a tech is not around. 
The backup devices are the only usb-disk device that is plugged into the server. 
I told them to unplug, wait a few seconds, and then plug in the new backup device. 
IIRC /media/usb0 is a symlink to /media/usb - which is where I told the scripts to backup to. 

Hope that helps,

I need automount so that office staff can swap drives without tech knowledge.
