Last update: 19-10-2010

You can select the Files and folders option of the Acronis True Image Backup Wizard to create an image of data stored on a USB flash drive


Acronis True Image can create an image of the whole flash card only if it is formatted as a hard disk drive. (A hard disk drive has a partition table).

If you wish to back up data on your USB flash card, you will have to pick the My Data option when running Backup Wizard.


  • Run the Acronis True Image Backup Wizard;
  • Select My Data;
  • Navigate to your USB flash card and check all the files or folders you want to back up.

(!) If you scheduled a backup task to back up files on USB flash drive  and USB flash drive is not connected at the time when the scheduled backup starts, backup task will fail.
