    Hi all, i just joined the board to see if anyone has ever found a program to access corrupted backup tib files. My HD died as i was trying to image it and so it did not complete but i got the 85 gig corrupted backup off the HD onto the USB drive. Now you would think with that much data there would be a way to access some of it, but it seems according to the support guys there is nothing to be done. I think this is crap and makes no sense so has anyone be able to find a program to maybe open corrupted files to try to restore stuff inside?

    As far as I'm aware there isn't any method to recover anything from a backup in that state. Even it best case scenarios the options are extremely limited.

    Did the source drive die completely or might it be possible to create another backup and try to recover from that instead? Or perhaps run data recovery on the drive?

    I found a tip from Acronis support dating back to 2005. They recommended to try to open the corrupt TIB file with the Image Explorer. You will need a Windows installation with True Image installed. Doubleclick on the TIB file in Explorer and see if it can be opened. If yes then you can salvage files to a different location on your HDD.

    Good luck

    I'd stay away from SpinRite until you know the exact mode of failure.
