DriveImage XML hung up and never quite finished so I'm trying "Backup and Restore" that is in win7. I want to save the backup to my external drive which has been assigned the letter E:.

However, the click through setup gives me no option to do this. It only wants me to backup to my dvd drive. And I've tried that. It burned through 23 disks at 4g each and still wasnt 10% done backing up about 10g of files. :blink:

How do I talk win7 into just backing up to the pretty 1T Seagate usb drive I bought specifically for this purpose??

Thank you for any help. :love4u:  I really need to get this mess backed up already. This is ridiculous.

Below is a picture of the click through problem. Clicking on "Back up now" does not give an option to change the drive to back up to. It just starts backing up to D: which doesn't even have a disk right now. :smash:

A picture of waht I'm talking about:


Machine: Toshiba Portege r705-P41, Dual Boot: MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit; Ubuntu 15.04
CPU: Intel Core i5 460M @ 2.53GHz Arrandale 32nm Technology,
RAM: 4.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 532MHz (7-7-7-20), Motherboard: TOSHIBA Portable PC (rBGA1288 Socket)
Video Card: Intel HD Graphics Revision 2 1720 MBytes
