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 ...
Image size is 331MB
NOTICE: Recovery snapshot created successfully on the USB device

{master:0}
