    Using this new drive of Seagate in combination with Acronis 9.1 - 10 (last build) causes a crash when I reboot from emergency CD and try to enter the disk. Using save mode (with all the special commands) doesn't solve the problem. Only booting with BartPE gives the possibility to enter the disk and to use my backups of my partition.

    Is there a chance for a betterand more comfortable support of the new External Storage Hard Drives of SEAGATE?

    Sorry to hear this but it cannot be a general problem as I have had no problems whatsoever with Acronis 10 Recovery CD and this external USB Seagate Drive.

    Did you choose the Full version with the Recovery CD and was the USB drive connected and powered on before you started booting from the Recovery CD?
