Automatic mount / unmount

I am currently testing the trail version of R Drive and I wanted to see if its possible to schedule a daily backup which first mounts a windows network share - does the backup to this share and then unmounts once its finishes.

The reason is I want to protect from a ransomware attack, if I go down the removable / external HD route then its adding a barrier to my automatic backups.

You cannot connect/disconnect a network share directly by an R-Drive Image itself, but you can do that by separate shell commands executed before and after the data backup. You may learn that in more detail on the R-Drive Image help: Create a Task (the Mail Notification/Aux Applications panel).
