Windows will not permit the creation of a system image on any USB external drive. Only a folder location, cd/dvd, or network location came up as available. I was trying to use a 1T WD My Passport Ultra (USB). The Windows system image process doesn't even detect it as a possible choice, and Macrium returns error message saying it's not a valid destination. Some hunting on the Web revealed that Microsoft apparently won't let you use a USB external drive for making system images (??)


Of course you can. I am doing it right now. Click File history and advancd. Then create image. I have a 2 terabyte USB 3 western digital drive attached and I create images twice a week. Try plugging the drive directly into a USB port on the computer.
