    I am exploring different backup solutions. I did read Acronis True Image features and some forums. I have one question and can't find clear answer.

    What are the options to browse all changes between two backup images? As I understan, one option is to mount two images as X: and Y: . Then I could compare all folders/files. This will work very slow.

    I was searching for feature or tool which can use incremental backup images and give me information about changed files. But I did not find anything.

    I understand that incremental backup image can be used only together with full backup image; and incremental backup image store changed sectors, not changed files. Anyway - each sector belong to some file. So, is there feature or tool which can do this?

    And last question: if I have 1) full backup, and 2) incremental back. Then can I mount them (read-only) together as two different drives X: and Y: ? If possible, then I could compare folders/files and find all differences.

    Thank you.

    Hello moni4m,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that there is no specialized tool in Acronis True Image to display changes between archives. You can mount (or explore) several archives (including full and incremental/differential) at the same time and compare their contents.

    If you have any further questions concerning Acronis software, please feel free to submit a request for technical support or post any of them on this forum. We will certainly try to help you in resolving any issues.

    Thank you.
