External HD Missing In Switched User Session
I have Travelstar HD hooked to my XFCE Maya system as a on-the-fly Lucky backup, and it works very well, except it disappears on the desktop if I switch to another user account. How can I make it appear and mount and access on both accounts?

Just a theory, as I'm not using Xfce at the moment: I think it uses gvfs for dynamic mounts and I think that makes the device appear only for the current user.
1 - check its permissions - it will probably be mounted under /media with a name based on the device, e.g.
You would need to change the mount options for the device ... somewhere in the control panel.
2 - even with this sorted out, the icon may not appear on the other user's desktop ... ie as a file in /home/user/Desktop ... but this doesn't mean it's not accessible
