I purchased Acronis True Image 9.0 (build 2,323) for ease of use (or so I thought) to transfer all my files onto a new external hard drive (WD MyBook Essential Edition 250 GB). Well, I chose "Clone" from Acronis to my new external HD and after really, really looking at the explanation for that, I found out it wasn't what I intended. I only wanted to duplicate what was on my desktop HD and put everything from there onto the new external HD. How can I revert back to the beginning and just put all my desktop files (entire backup) onto the external hard drive? I am using WIN-XP SP2. I jumped into deep water without a life preserver when I saw "Clone" because, to me, clone meant a copy of something and assumed that it meant all files from my hard drive. After the fact, I am now under the impression that my external hard drive is the drive that runs my system. How can I start from scratch and do it correctly? I want my desktop hard drive to be primary and my external hard drive to be there as backup just in case something happens to my desktop. Can I do this now since I goofed? And, if so, can you direct me please, please, please. Thank you.
