    Searching within Acronis TIB files

    Windows Explorer (XP) can do this but it's sooooooo slooooooooooow. Has anybody had any luck with a 3rd party file manager? All the ones I've tried fail to recognize the TIB file as a structured volume, so searching for files within is not possible.

    Why would you want a 3rd party program ??? Have you tried mounting the image in TI and then finding the file and restoring it or whatever you are wanting to do with it ???

    Re: Searching within Acronis TIB files

    I tried that, but the search was still very slow in Windows Explorer. BUT your idea opened up another possibility that works a treat. With the volume mounted, my Locate32 file searcher was able to "see" it as a logical drive and index its contents. I can now find the path of the file I'm looking for "instantly" and drill down in the TIB tree, without needing to mount it as a logical drive. <img src=/S/cloud9.gif border=0 alt=cloud9 width=25 height=23>
