I have a "Seagate 250gb FreeAgent" Desktop External USB Hard drive, which I use to store my Windows XP 32bit Backups created by "Norton Ghost 9".
I have now purchased a 2nd Desktop PC - "Windows Vista" 64bit - I will be using "Acronis Home 2009 " for the Backups on this PC, = Can I use the same external USB Hard drive to store Both the Ghost, And Acronis, Backup Images, or would there be a compatibility problem when I eventually restore an Image on Either PC,
I realise it would be logical to use the Acronis Software for the Backups on both PCs but I have used the Norton Ghost on this PC for the Past 5 yrs and it has proved to be very Reliable. also I have only a single use licence for the Acronis Home 2009,
I would be Grateful if anyone has had any experience of using the two system on an External HDD, Many Thanks for your esteemed replies.
