Does anyone know why my external drive shows up with a little red cross against it in my Acronis back up prog?

I want to do my usual back up but I can't presumably because of what the red cross means.

I don't follow what you mean by "little red cross against it in my Acronis backup prog"

When do you see this "red cross"?

When starting 'Create Image' & it maps the various drives. The external has a red cross.

Hi again,

From what I can make out the white cross in the red circle next to the drive means it has damaged partitions.

Can't find anything else yet about what to do in this sitiuation. Any ideas?

Many thanks.
