    I don't know how Olive handles external storage but on physical equipment it's simply:

     

    test@test> request system snapshot partition media usb 
    fpc0:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Partitioning and file system creation done
    Creating image ...
    Compressing image ...
