For sure what Dave said.'s really a bad idea to keep your backup drive connected to your system because there are many scenarios where you can lose your Mac and your backup (fire. theft, natural disaster, civil unrest, etc).

I know someone that thought they were doing the right thing with automated daily backups....until a burglar took the computer and backup drive.

So....also encrypt! It's easy to do with filevault2

At a minimum, get two backup drives and store one offsite. Consider using cloud with encryption that YOU control...check out ARQ or Cloudberry.
