Obsidian "forgets" vault that exists on removable drive

I have an obsidian vault that exists on a removable drive that isn’t always connected to my computer. When I have the drive removed and open Obsidian, it seems to “forget” the vault ever existed.

The next time I connect the drive and open the Obsidian vault switcher, the vault doesn’t show up in the list of last used vaults anymore. I then have to select “open folder as vault”, navigate to the correct folder, agree to trust the author of the vault and only THEN can I use the vault again.

It’s a bit of a pain.

Is there any way to tell obsidian to remember the vault even if the drive it’s on is disconnected?
