Please explain. I am new to Acronis True Image Home but not computers. I have taken 3 backups of drive C:\ 1) A full backup on Sunday called MyFile.tib 2) An incremental on Monday called MyFile2.tib 3) An incremental on Tuesday called MyFile3.tib As a test to understand the product, I executed a consolidation to a new file called MyNewFile. Acronis asked me which files I wished to keep and I checked only MyFile3.tib. It ran successfully and I now have MyNewFile.tib. Question #1) What do you mean by "keep" in this context. Question #2) What exactly is in MyNewFile.tib? Is it the contents of all 3 original files? Question #3) If I restored C: using either the original backup ( 3 files ) or the the new consolidated backup (MyNewFile), would C:\ be identical to what was there on Tuesday? Extra Question: If I had taken 1 Full backup and 6 incremental backups ( 1 each day called File, File2, File3, etc. ) and then wanted to restore my C drive to Wednesday, how would I do that? Assume the first was taken Sunday. Many thanks.
