I have a primary SD drive with 459GB and a mciro SD card with 119GB. My Acronis software was updated a day or two ago.How large is the size of the data you are trying to backup? I ask because if the hard drive contains a lot more than 2TB, then Acronis will not back it up to a 2TB drive.
If the drive has been on the shelf for awhile, it might have software that no longer works.

You might be trying to use software on the drive that no longer works.
My C: Drive has 459GB on it and my D: Drive 119GB When I try to do a back up it requires me to select one drive. Since the data I want to be sure is backed up, I choose D:. I want to have it back up both drives, Is there a way to configure it that will do that?What are you trying to Backup and Where is it ???
Is it an operating system (W7 or W10) or Data .... And how many Gig full is it ???
Can you show us what you have ????
I have a huge amount of Data and for many reasons ... My C: drive only contains my operating system.
X: and Y: and twins (a Backup of a Backup) and are my data drives.
I have more than one backup as can be seen in the screen shot showing Norton Backup. I also have a ClickFree backup system. I want to be able to clone my entire system as an additional backup.The only drive I backup with Acronis is my C: drive (my operating system) ... W7 on one computer and W10 on another.
I only run Acronis from a USB Flash or sometimes from a CD. The Operating System cannot be running when you make a Backup Image ..... (Acronis will be running in RAM)
It makes no sense to me to use Acronis to backup DATA ( pictures, docs - etc). If you have a lot of Data.
I just put my Data in a Twin or Triplicate HDDs .... I have 3 (One is Offline in a USB external).
I know, this might be overkill
I have almost 2 TB of data .... It would take many hours to Backup or Recover that much DATA.
I can recover my System in under 10 minutes ... All my Data is in separate HDDs.
If I lose a data drive ... It's much faster to clone a new one from a good one.
This is not a drive. It is a card.micro SD card
