Hello madlyfe,
In a word, yes.

Just make sure that the external drive is connected to and recognized by the PC before you make/setup a backup profile in FBackup and of course, when running the backup file in FBackup either manually or using automatic backup via the scheduler.
Hope this helps.

Hi,
If you mean plug and backup, please note that feature is not available in FBackup. It is included in the Portable edition of Backup4all, our commercial product.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html

Hi,
Yes, that is the same thing I was talking about: plug and backup.
