Is it possible to save to a single Seagate 500gb external drive two completely separate systems using Easus Todo.....W8.1 on a laptop and W8.1PRO on a desktop....will one override the other.

Hi,

Not familiar with that program but it should be possible to backup two different operating systems on a single hard drive. Just make sure that their filenames are different.

Keep us posted

Thank you for responding.....Having always backed up in the past using DVD's it was straightforward keeping two systems separate.

As both Desktop and Laptop are completely different.....Desktop Windows 8.1PRO and Ubuntu......Laptop W8.1 Super Raid 2 SSD's + HDD.

Both systems are on C Drive.

When copying to an external drive how do you give them different file names.....pardon my ignorance as I have never done this before.

Hi,

What backup software are you using? I suspect that the software will do most of the job for you. One other possibility is to partition the backup destination calling one desktop and the other laptop - feel free to be more creative :thumbup2:
