Definitely not a flash drive Bob.bob466 wrote: ↑Sun Dec 08, 2019 10:11 pmSounds to me like you're trying to put the Image on a Flash Drive Formatted to Ext4 which will not work.Bob M wrote: ↑Sun Dec 08, 2019 3:08 pmUnfortunately guys an epic fail.
I booted from my Macirum Reflect 7 Disk and all was looking good except I couldn’t see the folder I had made to insert the Back-Up in on the target external usb Drive.
I could see the drive ok
Oh well, I’ll just back-up anyway.
Up pops a message: Your Target Disk is not formatted do you wish to format it?
Well it is formatted and has my Timeshift backups on it along with the folder I wished to place my clone in.
The only thing I can think of is the External disk is formatted ext4 and Macirum can’t read it?
I guess the question now is “What to do next”.
The first step says...1. Plug in your External HDD and create a Folder and name it eg Mint Backup 18.3 and date it.
External HDDs come Formatted to NTFS which work just fine with both Linux and Windoze...you can use any size HDD...2TB or larger...remember an Image can be over 100GBs...I use a Portable 2TB HDD as shown below...

Hope this helps.
It's a brand new 1Tb WD Elements SE.
Here is a screenshot showing the Folder I wanted to put the cloned image in, the Folder with the Timeshift back ups in, and a lost & found folder with nothing in it. Where it came from I have no idea.
