I typically unmount my USB drive (using umount) from /dev/sdb1 before I shutdown my computer but if I shut it down using shutdown -P now and then restart it, the drive is no longer mounted.
shutdown -P now
Is this a safe way to unmount the drive?
Yes, all mounted drives are automatically unmounted during shutdown.
