Using an external usb hd for backup image plus?

I bought a 500GB. external usb drive and backed up a restore image on it. My question is, can I also store other data on this drive also? Thanks!

Hello p5200,

Yes, you sure could if you like.

Just be sure not to rename or move the WindowsImageBackup folder that contains the image.
