Acronis True Image

I have just bought external drive which was formatted in Fat 32, just checked my C drive which is designated as NTFS, will the Acronis disc do the back ups. Do you see any problems arising? I haven't installed disc yet so am hoping for some advice.

You CAN change the new FAT32 external drive to NTFS, as I did, since I wanted complete compatibility with both my C drive and the new drive.
There are many advantages in doing this, such as better file security, better disc compression and better support for large hard drives.
Check this Forum on how to format the new drive to NTFS, ther will be plenty of helpful members.

left mine as FAT32 and it works fine

If you use Acronis Secure Zone, that's FAT 32 anyway.
