Filemaker server progressive backup on external hard drive

I have an external thunderbolt hard drive on which I wish to put my Filemaker Server Progressive Backup. It is working well if I activate manually the progressive backup from the Filemaker Server Console.


However, when the server starts on his own in the morning (planned at 7:25), the progressive backup is not able to launch automatically.


Any idea ? Is it because the volume is not mounted yet ?

The progressive backup time is set to 15


Any workarounds ?


Thanks in advance


Here is the log I can find in the event.log file
