    The simple process of storing the safety backup external to your home would improve the data security.
    Storing the drive concerned at a family Member's home, or that of a friend, or neighbour's would be Ideal - you could also make this a reciprocal arrangement where you store their data backup.

    There is also of course the option of online storage, the cost of this would obviously depend on your data size and Internet access speeds but is a possibility.

    Coming from a business/industrial background means that I do try to safeguard data more than most but even for a home user, things like family photos that cannot be replaced are worth a little time & effort (and money ), to protect

    Its up to the user. If you are very security conscious such as not to open any attachments or links in emails or go to sites that are not trusted or shady, then you can leave it disabled. I heard that its very intrusive most of the times. But again, its up to how secure conscious is the user.

    Your ultimate protection would be common sense (like mentioned above), patch your Windows and all software, and try to run as a Limited User account (if possible).

    And of course, backup your data.

    That's why I keep using Malwarebytes Anti-Ransomware rather than turn on Controlled Folder Access.
