Okay guys let me give ya a little run down as to what has happened here. I have Acronis. I installed Acronis on my computer before i formatted it so that i could back up all of my contents, i.e music and documents. I obviously didnt do it right because i did it only once but i actually have about 13 .tib files. So that aside. I formatted my computer and had the .tib files on my external Lacie Hard Drive. Seemed to be no problem there. Now i foolishly copied over the entire contents of all the users and i had some pretty big backup of un neccesary stuff. But once the format was complete i used Acronis to load the music back onto the computer. But me not thinking straight i loaded the wrong users set of music and not the complete library. But its still on my hard drive. So i decided to just forget about it, have left it for about a month. Hard drive has just sat there and done nothing. Now im going on holiday and wanna get my over 300 pounds worth of music off of the external compressed files and back onto the computer. Now every file except the 12th .tib one seems to say that they are not acronis files and are all 0KB in size. But the 12th one is 47GB. So obviously thats the one with all the music on. So i restarted and booted from acronis, got the archive, number 12. Had a little sift round in it, found the correct folder with all the right files and now im trying to restore it back to my hard drive. Should be fine!? No! Acronis starts for about 2 seconds then say, "please insert #0000001 of the archive" So i thought okay maybe it means the other tib files. So i loaded all the .tib files onto the main hard drive and tryed again, and still no luck!? Now i know the files are there! I'm talking a serious amount of music could be lost here. But i just cant get Acronis to extract. Is there any way i can just go into the tib, grab the files and move them over in real time? I need this music! Any help! PLEASE! Much appreciated! p.s i go on holz tomoro! lol! This is for my ipod whilst away! PLEASE HELP!
