Description

Hi.

This is kinda related to #1014...

When a removable device (e.g. external HDD/SSD) is added, and when smartd is configured to monitor it (e.g. via DEVICESCAN or explicitly naming the device), then such device should be checked shortly after it's been attached.

The reason is, that it's not so uncommon, that such removable devices are attached only for a short period of time,... and with the default check interval of 30 mins, it may easily happen that the device isn't scanned for long with SMART errors remaining unnoticed.

Cheers,
Chris.
