    I changed the backup system from legacy to new one.

    I just want to clarify that the option of "Mount Backup Drive as Needed" only works if backup directory hasn't been mounted, right? If it's already mounted, will backup system skip mounting the drive?

    Hello,

    If you are using local path to set backup configuartion and not using any other "separate drive/Network File System (NFS) mount" drive for backup then you need disable "Mount Backup Drive as Needed" option.

    It's an USB drive. Actually, mount was realized flawlessly, the thing is when backup completed system didn't apply umount command. Namely, for next backup time, there is no need to mount a disk.
