Btw, I'd go as far and say that you can safely drop anacron these days.
A lot of Debian packages which ship a cron job also ship a native
systemd .timer. Such persistent timers handle systems which don't run
24/7 in a much better way.

In your case, I would recommend to use a .timer to start your backup
task. The arch wiki [2] is a good start, or simply take a look at
existing timers on your system:

systemctl cat logrotate.service logrotate.timer

Michael
