    I've tested the Acronis backup software and after a few problems I finally had it working (making an image of a server).

    But now, I want to restore 1 single file. So I used the "Explore Image" tool to locate the file (and then restore it).

    This is terrible ! It assigns a drive letter to an image (takes about 3 minutes to do that on a 3 Ghz machine) and after that the computer is sooooo sloooowwwwww. You cannot work with this.

    Because I back upped a server, the image is about 30 GB big. It seems to me that Acronis cannot handle this size?

    Once you have found the file that you need why not just drag and drop or copy and paste. It works for me .

    I once tried a newer version of Acronis, but that is not working. There is a major problem/bug (username is not accepted by backing up a remote system). As far as I know that problem is not solved. So I do not like to upgrade.
