I have been successfully using The Secure Zone for backups with TI 8. I just bought an external USB 2.0 hard drive (portable 80GB) for backups. When I got home and connected it I discovered the external drive was formatted for FAT32. My computers are NFTS with Windows XP SP2. If I create my images on the external FAT32 drive, when I restore the image back to my computer, will the computer's file system still be NFTS as it was originally? I have searched this forum for info regarding this and I have found both "yes" and "no" answers to this question. I would appreciate Acronis weighing in on this as this question is not answered in the FAQ's for either TI 8 (gone) or TI 9. I appreciate anyone's help out there. Thank you.
