Is it possible to take a drive image to, and restore from, an external USB hard drive?

As Drive Image drops to DOS in order to do it's job I suspect the answer is no -- but there are some clever people on here.

Thanks L

......should have said USB external drive.

DriveImage won't do it but Acronis claims it will.

That's interesting -pops-, I will try it out over the weekend and let you know.

I hope it does or I shall have thrown a goodly load of dosh away.

And Drive Image 7 will, although I haven't tried it yet.

Acronis does - but it runs as a background task in Windows as well, which is the way that I use it. No need to shut down, reboot, wait for imaging to finish. Just launch the program, tell it which drive to image, carry on working while it does it's stuff.

Thanks for this.

I've got Drive Image 2002 and it won't work with the external usb drive (Maxtor) which is unfortunate because that's why I bought the drive ... today. Tried to take an image of my C drive to it and DI reports can't find G drive. Looks like I didn't think the thing out properly. My own stupid fault really.

Looks like I've got to spend some more money then, on Acronis. Damn.

Aaaaah well !!!
