Ransomware protection by connecting and disconnecting the backup drive
To protect from ransomware, it seems desirable to make a backup to an external drive and then disconnect the drive from the system. However, if you have a scheduled backup, you need to remember to attach the drive before the schedule backup and disconnect it afterwards. I suggest providing an automated reminder from the computer reminding you to connect the drive and then after the backup, reminding you to disconnect.
Of course, even better would be some way of automatically connecting and disconnecting.
