Windows 7: Can I back up system images (Macrium) of win 7 + 8.1 on external HD?

Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit, SP1

If you're agreeing, then you must be aware that my my external 1 TB HDD is the designated backup holder while the C drives to backup are 240/70 MB and the D drives are 332/500 MB or something like that. That won't cause any problems? Just want to make sure.
