The external device is inaccessible:

For example

  • There is no memory card in the card reader.
  • The flash drive or USB disk is inaccessible.


(!) The ability to edit a backup task with unavailable backup location has been implemented and is available in the latest build of Acronis True Image Home 2012.

For older builds please see below:

If you have a card reader, please make sure there is a memory card in the device. If not, please put it in.

If this is a flash drive or a USB disk, please make sure it is accessible - e.g. try opening it from Windows.

If you do not need the backup anymore, you can remove it from the list by clicking Remove from the list:

Alternatively, if the letter of the disk where you keep the backup has changed, you can change it back to the original one. Please see Windows: Changing an Assigned Drive Letter.
