Backup utility and external hard drive

    I have a 160 GB Verbatim external hard drive formatted NTFS. The Backup
    utility doesn't seem to recognize it, and when I 'force' it by browsing to
    the drive letter it will only accept 4GB. I can use the back up utility to
    my "c" drive successfully, but cannot then copy the 20 GB bkup to the
    external drive, getting msg that the (empty) drive doesn't have enough room.
    Is this something inherent in the backup utility or am I not holding my lip
    right? Thanks in advance for your time and attention.

    If the drive is empty use disk management to format to NTFS.
