    I backed up a folder with files to a USB drive.

    Acronis says "can't plug because image contains no partitions"

    Anyone else see this?

    I am wanting to restore an individual file from this image.

    Thanks

    I have seen in the manual where it says you have to have a partition on the drive you wish to plug in the image from. Could this be your problem?
    I had to put a partition on my external USB drive before I could plug in a image.

    Thanks, I will look at that

    But, I thought you HAD to have at least one partition to
    have a useable whether it is USB or internal.

    BTW.... did some more reading and guess what?

    Can't Plug or create a virtual drive from a folder/file image.

    Shucks.... shure wish this were possible.

    Hello ndmartin,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that the file-based backup can not be mounted as a virtual drive by means of the embedded Plug Image Tool, because it contains no partitions.

    However, you still can restore individual files and folders from the file-based backup using Recovery Wizard.

    Please also note that you can find the detailed instructions on how to use Acronis True Image 9.0 in the respective User's Guide.

    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.
