Unable to select external hard drive to save a system image
I've ordered a new hard drive for my laptop to replace the current 160 GB it has. It should arrive very soon so I've just tried to create a system image of my C:/ drive but when choosing where to save the image I am not able to select my external hard drive, instead it blanks it out the on hard disk option and goes straight to the DVD or Network option.
The hard drive works fine in Windows 7 for normal operation, it is a IOMEGA 250 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive. It does however have files already on it, it's free space is 195 GB.
Does it need more free space, or am I missing something?
