Generally the way to avoid it would be for your backup application to
fail if the destination does not exist, and alert the admin.
For instance, rsnapshot has the "no_create_root" option to do exactly that.
If you're making backups with scripts of your own, just start with
test -d $destination || alert_admin_and_exit
...where $destination is a sub-directory under the mount point. Backing
up directly to the mount point can make it more complicated to detect
the presence of the mounted filesystem.
