 Post subject: Feature request: Handling of unavailable network drives

Hello and thanks for this great program, which is extremely valuable for my daily work.

I'm saving my AutoVer backup to an external network drive on another computer in my LAN. That computer is configured to go to stand-by after some time of inactivity. So it is possible that the target drive for AutoVer is unavailable.

Request 1:

When I forget to wake up the target computer, AutoVer does not alert me about the drive being unavailable. It would be nice to have an unmistakable indicator of this fact, e.g. the AutoVer icon in the system tray flashing and/or showing a balloon tip message.

Request 2:

Even better would be an (additional and optional) feature that sends a "Wake on LAN" packet ("Magic Packet" according to the de-facto standard by AMD) to the target computer to wake it up from stand-by.

Without at least one of these features, I can never be sure whether my changes are actually backed up. Addition of these features would surely convince me to send you another donation for your great product.

Best regards,
