Hi All,

Have just bought a external Western Digital Hardrive. And find the software that came with it hard to use, Retrospect 6.5. So have downloaded a trial version of Acronis True Image Home 9.
But cannot find a way of backing up to my external drive “F” it will backup onto my computers hardrive OK, but I wish to have a backup separate so that if my computer crashes again I can do a full system backup.
Can anybody advise on how to backup to an external drive using Acronis or can you recommend a better backup software.

Go to your ext hd and create a folder called Acronis backup, when you start the True Image backup it will ask where to and you go to the ext drive in an explorer type window , presumably you can access the ext drive in Windows Explorer?
