    Is it possible that a full backup is taken on one drive and incremental backups on another drive and during restoration from the incremental backup the full backup related to it is detected in the other drive automatically ?

    From the manual

    If the incrementals are all on CDs (for example) Ti will prompt you for each CD. I guess if you keep the Incrementals on another drive it'll just prompt you for the location.

    Thanks PauB2005 for your response. I had actually wanted to know if I have full backups on one hard drive and all incremental backups in another hard drive, will acronis automatically detaect the relevant full backup file during restoration process

    I know.

    Thats what i'm saying. You be prompted for the location of the other files in the same way as if they are on CDs.

    Hello scaa,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    If you have the full image on one hard drive and incrementals on another one (or even in a separate folder) you will be able to restore the full iamge without any problems. However, if you try to restore the incremental image with some previous incrementals or full image missing from the folder you will get an error. If you have several incrementals and several full images in one folder Acronis True Image will sort out what incrementals to what full image correspond.

    Thank you.
