As far as I know one of the major features of Acronis True Image Home 2009 is that a backup task which has a removeable target drive like an eSATA disc will check if the target drive is connected and will do the backup when the drive is reconnected to the PC. This does not work for me. I have a daily backup task. When it runs and the eSATA drive is not connected it shows an I/O error message. When the drive is reconnected the task seems not to start automatically. Unfortunatly I can not find any detailed help in the manual if some special settings have to be done or if this is a build-in feature of the tasks.
