I am trying to backup some old hard drives, and each time I connect it to my Macbook Pro (Big Sur M1 Silicon), it shows as being modified with today's date on it. I don't know if its spotlight or if its trying to create .DS_Store files everywhere, but it modifies each of the dates within the hard drive folders. How can I make a hard drive I am connecting to my Mac be read-only to begin with? Thanks.
