Acronis image to USB hdd?

  [DELETED] 12:38 10 Jan 2006

Simple question, will Acronis True Image create a complete image of my fixed HDD on a second, removable usb HDD?

If so it sounds like the perfect disaster recovery strategy. Image the whole disk say weekly to a removable HDD which I then unplug and keep separately from the pc. Sounds too simple to be true; have I overlooked anything?

Yes,there are many problems with USB and TrueImage.Better to create the image to internal drive/partition and copy across to the USB drive.
