In S.M.A.R.T. for Linux, under File System -> Copy Mount Point:
what exactly does this command do?

Can i assume then that based on the underwhelming response that this command is either irrelevant, unused, or otherwise ussless? How many ways can it be googled with no results before one gives up?

-40 views and no ideas???

This is more of a Linux question than a forensic question. Mounting is how you attach the filesystem of one device to a directory of another in Linux. For example, attaching a flash drive to the mnt directory on your hard drive. Unmounting is the opposite. So for your situation, it will unmount your thumb drive. It's not program specific, it's a common Linux command. Google "man linux" for more command details.

darknight, thanks for your response. If you look at the image in the original post it shows the commands unmount, browse, open terminal here, and COPY MOUNT POINT.

So, to rephrase the question:
What would be the purpose of copying a mount point, from a forensics standpoint?

I am familiar with the concept of mount and umount, but I am at a loss as to why the 'copy mount point' function would be included in forensics software package.

What would you do with a copied mount point? Paste it? Where?

Whoops! Sorry about that, I didn't look closely enough at your original question. I blame the lack of caffeine Laughing

Without getting some hands on with this, my only guess would be that it's an option to copy the files that are located within a mount point (kind of like making a logical image).
