    Need help with Acronis backup

    I have Acronis TI 2011 and have used it in the past for restoring total back up images. A few days ago I backed up my Windows Live Mail, and now I want to recover it. I started by loading my Acronis Bootable Media disk. I was able to find my mail back up but could not see how to restore it. There didn't seem to be any button I could click to start the restore. It was an incremental backup if that makes any difference. Can anyone walk me through the process of getting this file back?

    To recover files you do not need the recovery media. Now TI 2011 is a bit old and I no longer have it installed, so it's a bit difficult to provide step by step guidance, but let me ask you this - the backup in question has only the Live Mail files or does it have more stuff?

    I would also suggest a look at the TI 2011 manual.

    If you open TI, you will find something like this:

    From the My Backups menu, choose Explore All Backups and pick the one you want, by clicking it. This will open the Backup Explorer.

    From here, you should be able to find the files and folders you want, select them and click the Recover button, like shown here:

    I added Instructions for Acronis 2011 here. These were added during the old Lounge so the screen shots were all tacked on at the end when the Lounge was updated.

    This was very helpful, but my Acronis TI is so screwed up that I am thinking of uninstalling it and trying again. I can't back up anything and get huge numbers for problems that Acronis has no answers for. The same thing applies to restoring any files - same huge problem numbers, which again when checked out, ATI has no answers. I have another system image file on a separate hard drive that I can fall back on if I need it. Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the information. I already have the Acronis Users Guide in a file on my desktop - but with more than 200 pages of instructions, it's hard to follow and every time I resorted to it, I gave up shortly thereafter. They shouldn't make programs that need so much instruction.

    Not sure what I can say, without knowing the issues you are facing with TI.
