    Hello Bunky1115,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please accept our apologies for the delay with the response.

    Please note that Acronis Backup Server allows you to automate the processes of creating, storing and deleting backups. We recommend that you provide the corresponding comment when creating backup in Acronis Backup Server. If you added a comment to the archive, it will be displayed to the right of the drives tree shown on the second screen of the Restore Data Wizard. In such a way you will always be able to tell the difference between the backups saved to Acronis Backup Server and choose the appropriate one for restoration.

    Please note that when installed on a computer (which becomes a backup server from this point on), Acronis Backup Server creates the following folder: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\BackupServer. This folder is a default backup location. Therefore, you will be able to store backup archive to Acronis Backup Server as long as there enough space on this drive. You can change the default backup location and its quotas/time limits by selecting Specify Default Settings -> Set backup location and entering the desired location and values.

    You can find more information on how to use Acronis Backup Server in the corresponding Acronis True Image version User's Guide.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum. We will certainly try to help you in resolving any issues.

    Thank you.
