I am trying to create an image of my hard drive on to a freecom usb external drive. When it comes to selecting the drive I wish to put it on I only have a choice of driveA floppy disc drive or my asus CD/RW drive. The Freecom drive, which should show as drive F will not appear with the floppy and cd/rw drives so I can`t select it. The drive F has been formatted and has nothing on it. My os is XPhome sp2.Can anyone suggest what I should do please.
Thats odd, mine shows the external USB drive (provided its turned on it does not if its turned off) and also the C drive. Are you getting the C Drive showing? I realise you do not want to put it there.
Meshuga I have used a freecom external USB drive, for many years to store my images using Acronis true image, without any problems. Can you confirm that your USB drive and C drive show in my computer. This would eliminate whether the problem is in Acronis true image.
Hi stylehurst. Yes,C drive and F drive appear in my computer however, since my last post I have found that you can create the image on the Desktop, which I have done, and then, using "Send To" I have transferred it on to the F drive. So at least I achieved what I set out to do, albeit by a roundabout route. I have`nt used acronis since 2004 so had forgotton the proceedure. Many thanks for your interest.
