Q-Making a backup on a external HD thats in use

I never made a backup in 7.Im sure its pretty straight fwd once I go through with making a backup.
But my question is,If I make a full backup on a external that has music,games etc in it.Would I run into any trouble?It has no OS files in it.
Thanks

Hello mate.


You would have a better time using Macrium instead of Windows backup, have a look at this tutorial at the link below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

To answer the question, you can store an image externally though be sure to create a separate file for it, don't just let it "go where it wants" to go.
