I am using ATI2009 Home, Build 9796 A question prompted by a comment in an earlier thread. My ‘C’ drive is NTFS and I have a clone of this on an external drive made when I first used Acronis a few weeks ago. On a second external drive ‘D’ I have ‘My backup (1), ‘My Backup (2) and ‘My Backup (3), the drive with these backups is formatted as FAT.32. All the files from the backups show as do various configuration files of the drive itself. So my question is: Should the external drive ‘D’ be reformatted as NTFS and the backups redone or will in the case of a recovery being required Acronis be able to handle the fact that the ‘C’ drive and ‘D’ drive are different formats?
