The optimal solution would be to build offline media knowledge into KPA. Now 
KPA just monitors a single tree - if KPA knew about different devices and 
those devices could be marked as "offline candidates" it would be trivial to 
ignore it when scanning for deleted images.

It would be also be fantastic if KPA would ask for a volume to be mounted when 
we try to display an image stored on media that's currentely offline.
