I suggest that an option be added to Reflect which ejects the drive after doing the backup (assuming that this can be done programatically).

My rationale is that if you do a backup on booting in, the backup drive can be unplugged and thus protected from nasties (especially ransomware, which AIUI scrambles the data on all drives). Of course, you have to remember to plug it back in when rebooting or switching off on.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for posting.

I have passed this onto the development team for evaluation.

Kind regards

Nice idea, particularly for cloning an OS drive to another drive. It would be good if, when cloning a drive, that Reflect automatically dismounts the drive once the cloning process is complete. That way, regardless of whether or not Reflect is configured to shut down the computer at the end of the cloning process, then the cloned drive is dismounted and thus is basically guaranteed to boot since it can't be tampered with once the OS dismounts it.
