When performing a local cloning operation, the USB 3.0 external hard drive is not shown as an available destination drive in Ghost.
Ghost standard tools boot disk booting into Windows PE.
The latest Ghost binaries do not have an issue reading and writing to external USB 3 hard drives but in some situations the external hard drive will not be seen properly by the Windows PE boot environment.
If an external drive is not seen from the Ghost GUI consider trying to plug the external drive into a different USB port and reboot into Windows PE again to see if it is now seen properly.
some computers do not have the USB 3 bus active until a full OS is loaded. In this case locate a USB 2 port to plug the external drive into while working in Windows PE.
If using Linpe or a version of Windows PE prior to 3.x consider upgrading to the latest Windows 10 based PE for the best driver support.
Once Windows PE can properly identify the external drive, Ghost should then be able to see and save images to or from the external USB 3 drive.
Additionally Ghost Cast Server could be used and the USB 3.0 device could be plugged into the system running the Ghost Cast Server in Windows.
