How can I restore one or more files from acronis .tib file


coucou

Recommended Posts

I used WinPE 10-8 Sergei Strelec (x86/x64/Native x86) 2018.05.03 English Acronis True Image 2018 Build 11530 to make a backup of my disks/partitions. It works like a charm :D

However, as I've not Acronis True Image apps installed in my PC, how can I explore the acronis  .tib file? In other words, how can I restore one or more files from that backup when the Acronis True Image normal apps is not installed.

Regards

You are trying to restore lemons from an orange. :)

TNX all for yr reply ;) I'll give a try.

BTW, is there an apps just to explore (no restore) a backup .tib file without acronis installed?

You neither need an additional app. to explore the backup file created by Acronis nor do you need Acronis to be installed (all that's required is the Acronis BootCD.)

I have the Acronis BootCD. But I have to boot with, while I want to explore my .tib files in normal Windows use.

You'll have to boot into Windows with the Acronis BootCD — if on the other hand, you want to explore the backup file under normal use, you would need to install Acronis (not at all a good idea.)

You are wrong.  Don't use True Image do you, or you would know better.

I'm a beta-tester at Acronis — can you point-out where exactly where you think that I'm wrong. :coolwink:

You're right I just tested it... it works like a charm :clap:

I installed Acronis True Image 2018 22.5.1 Build 11530 setup for test. So, I could also explore and restore file with it (see bellow image). :dance:

 

However, I created a new Acronis BootCD...  It does NOT allow to explore a backup or restore a file. Unless it is well hidden :blink::think:

Any idea?

Thats FUNNY.. as a user of acronis to back up my C boot partition.. and as i have it installed.. after all Press F11 at startup boots into the recovery mode...

I have on many occasions restored a multitude of files from my back up image. not only single files, but entire folders.. example..

When i updated to the new winhex, and found out there was no keygen for that version and the key didnt actually work.. i deleted the folder and used the one installed on my backup image.. opened in explorer, copied the entire folder across.

Sorry, but I think yu are wrong. Read closely my post above.

1) I did a backup of 2 partitions C: and D: with WinPE 10-8 Sergei Strelec (x86/x64/Native x86) 2018.05.03 English Acronis True Image 2) I installed

2) I installed Acronis True Image 2018 22.5.1 Build 11530  setup for test.

3) So, I could also explore and restore my Partitions and restore Files & Folders.

Your pre-condition was that you want to use just the Acronis BootCD — isn't it?

 

The moment you installed Acronis you proved what I said was right — check my highlighted text (reproduced below):—

I don't understand what you mean :blink:  I created an Acronis BootMedia (on USB key). So, I boot on it , and couldn't explore the backup partition

Isn't that exactly what I've been saying . . . . . . all along? A5qMhta.gif

 

Let me try one last time to explain the lemon and orange narrative, in a different way (especially for the benefit of the stray cat):—

A backup of Files & Folders cannot restore Disks / Partitions.

If you want to use just the BootCD (without installing Acronis) but still be able to explore your files and folders — do not use the first option of backing-up Disks / Partitions . . . . . . instead, opt for the second backup option Files & Folders. You will then be able to explore and also restore selective files and folders from that particular Files & Folders backup but would not be able to restore disks or partitions.

 

However, if you use the first option of backing-up Disks / Partitions, you will be able to restore disks or partitions from that particular Disks / Partitions backup but would not be able to restore files and folders.

 

In case the above scenarios do not meet your requirements, the only option left for you, would be to install Acronis — bet that's what the stray cat has opted for. :lmao:

 

If you failed to understand the above explanation, you might be better-off using Macrium. :dunno:

Finally, I understood what you tried to explain :stupid: and apparently  I was not alone in having trouble to understand what you mean.:fool::smoke:

All's well That ends well :clap::cheers:

 

So, Is there an univeral backup viewer to just explore (no file restore) the .tib file? it swells me to install acronis (600 MB) to explore (check) my backups.

In a short answer no.. Tibs can only be viewed by the program that created it.. If you want to explore it within windows.. You need to install it.
