Trigger from mounting an external drive/camera


Recommended Posts

I do a lot of video editing, and I would like to automate the copying of video's when I attach the SD-card tot the card reader. Is this possible?

 

Ideally, I'd like the workflow to start when I connect the SD card, and then copy all files from a certain directory to a directory on my external harddrive. 

 

Less optimal but equially acceptable would be a command or hotkey to achieve the same thing after I insert the card. 

 

Any tips?

Nope, afraid not. By design, Alfred only responds to user actions, not system events.

 

You can certainly create a command or hotkey to run a script that copies your files off the SD card, but Alfred is the wrong tool for anything you want to happen "automatically".
