    I have successfully used the Acronis Corporate Pack to back up my Server and a workstation. When the backup is finished I see 1 .tib file on my external HDD.
    I am using a computer at home for work and installed Acronis Succesfully. When I do a full back up of this computer, I get a series of 10 backups all the same size. If I open #1 it says it is "Volume 1 in a series of multivolume image archive Mybackup.tib". Why don't I just have a full bckup of this drive as I requested during setup?
    Thank you for your time

    Which file system is in use on your external USB hard disk; NTFS or FAT32? FAT32 has a 4 GB file size limitation, so TI will split the backup file into 4 GB pieces when saving to a FAT32 disk. If you want a single large backup file then the drive must be formatted with the NTFS file system.

    Hello mlfdat2,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis True Image

    You can convert FAT32 file system to NTFS without data loss using Microsoft convert.exe utility:

    1. Click Start, click Programs, and then click Command Prompt
    2. At the command prompt, type CONVERT [driveletter]: /FS:NTFS
    3. Convert.exe will attempt to convert the partition to NTFS

    See Microsoft KB article for more information.

    Best regards,
    Dmitry Nikolaev
