I have two 1 TB macOS drives. I am trying to image the other macOS drive, but because Acronis True Image on macOS is combining the two drives together, I can't select just one, only both.

See the screenshot. It shows a 1 TB drive having 2 TB.

Hello XP1,

thank you for your posting! Any chance you have a Fusion Drive here?

1 SSD (SATA internal) and 1 HDD (connected by USB). They are 1:1 bit-by-bit clone made by Clonezilla. I guess Acronis gets confused because the drives are a clone of the same macOS instance. I reinstalled macOS (new instance), and I was able to select the drives separately.
