Choose which drive you want and you can back up tverything on it using the "tib" option. The other option is for backing up files or folders.
Just create a back up folder on the external and point True Image to it.

I've restored a complete drive easily with this program, saves those wasted hours reinstalling an OS etc when better things to do.

You will find that a tib file may only take less than 15 minutes to make or restore, better than an afternoon reloading windows and programs. Consider having 2 disks or partitions, C with only os and progs, D with ALL your data. This way when you have an Acronis image of C it can take around 5 to 10 minutes to get a restored system. If you add some progs, make an incremental backup then choose the incremental tib to restore, acronis will progress itself from the incremental to the full tib
