Recently I've been thinking about buying an external HD to backup my laptop's drive. I'm thinking about using Acronis True Image to do that.
But I have one question: The external drive I'm planing to buy is 1 TB. If I make a disk image backup of my 750 GB HDD, can I leave the extra 250 GB free as another partition, to use it as a normal USB drive? If so, how?
And later, if I need to restore the image how will the software treat this extra partition? Can I select to backup the image of only the C: and D: partitions, leaving the E: (extra) alone?
