I would like to set up a new client with the following. 1. He has an HP(XP) computer of late vintage with a 100gb hard drive. 2. The hard drive is approx half full with a lot of pictures. 3. They want to use the TI s/w to control the image backup and restore process. 4. There is no bay to hold a second hard drive and I do not wish to use duct tape to secure an internal drive. 5. From the forum, I gleaned that you do not recommend using Acronis Secure Zone with an external drive that may be disconnected sometimes. Is this true? 6. What are the gotcha's on using the ext drive for backups and restores only? What do you recommend as being a good setup using the ext drive. Thanks for your assistance.
