    How do I clear the list of archives from the Consolidation wizard -> archive to consolidate panel? One of the archives listed has imbedded a wrong drive letter and it won't fix by using the Browse button - always refers to the now bad drive letter that was used in the list of archives..

    When beginning a restore, can you Right click on the listing and choose remove or delete?

    That deletes the backup from the disk. All I want to do is delete the item from the list.

    I have a backup listed there that was written to y:\... but I copied it to x: and now want to consolidate it. When I try to point the 'Browse.." to x:/ it says it can't find the backup on y:, even though I am trying to force TI to read x:/...

    You did these file changes within ATI? If not, that's a no-no with ATI12/2009. ATI 12/2009 keeps a database of backups and unless your file operations are donw ewithin ATI, it goes wonky. While the database allows ATI 12/2009 to do some thing prior versions couldn't, it makes it a very unforgiving progam as far as file operations are concerned. It's the big "what the heck were they thinking?" in this particular version of ATI.

    Hello rick007,

    Thank you for your interesting in Acronis True Image

    Acronis True Image Home 2009 creates the archive database file upon the first startup. Information about every backup created with Acronis True Image Home 2009 is recorded into this database. The database file is named archives.xml and is located in:

    * Windows 2000/XP: Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\TrueImageHome\Database
    * Windows Vista: Program Data\Acronis\TrueImageHome\Database

    Best regards,
    --
