    I do just this. I create Images (any good imaging app will do this. Check the Security and Backups forum) of 2 separate PC's onto the same Ext USB HD. Just be sure to name the Image to identify which PC it belongs to.

    I believe Images would be better and quicker to create than a back up. The Image creates a compressed file that takes up less space than a full backup. To achieve a full back up a clone would be the way to go. To be the most effective, your image must be kept up to date, that is any time a change takes place, I create a new Image so the restoration gets me back to where I started without having to do any updates after the restoration.
    BACKUP...BACKUP...BACKUP
