How Do I Disconnect Backup & Sync from External USB Drive Storage

Well! I'm not surprised to see this question. Whenever a New feature is released there seems to be quite a bit of front end user confusion. Please follow the below steps to disconnect your External USB Drive Storage Device from the New Google Drive Backup & Sync Google Drive Client.
On your computer, click Backup and Sync . Click More (3 vertical dots) Preferences. A Window Pops Open Scroll Down and Click USB Devices & SD Cards New Window Opens Scroll Down & Uncheck Plug in Camera or Phone to Backup Files Click   OK 
The above steps should prevent syncing between your laptop and an External USB Storage.
