    I am completely new the imaging stuff, since all these year we were using some regular backup software to backup some of the files on our server.

    We were backing up server(Domain server, Exchange + File Server ) using Veritas backup.

    I wanted to look into this imaging thing as well, I guess backup and imaging are two different things, need some answers .


    1) Does "Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server" include both
    (BACKUP + IMAGING) SOFTWARE ?


    2) Does Acronis 9.1 enterprise allow me to restore individual files from the
    image backup ?

    a) Flat files
    b) Database files
    c) Restore an exchange mail box


    3) Which is recommened backup or imaging ? usually how do companies have thing setup ? small business with 50 users ?


    --thanks

    1) YES
    2) a. YES
    2) b. YES
    2) c. No but you can use Ontrack Powercontrols to do this from a mounted image

    3) With TrueImage your Image is you Backup. Best is to buy A cheap LACIE teradisk and make you images to there. Use full+incrementals.. with one of the image consolidation scripts that hang out here. Then backup the image from Teradisk to Tape (D2D2T = Disk 2 Disk 2 Tape)

    Re: Does "Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server" include both (BACKUP +IMAGING) SO

    Thanks for the reply.

    So if I use the Acronis 9.1 True image enterprise server with Universal restore, then I can get rid of the Veritas backup software what i have.

    I can use this ACronis for Imaging .

    1) Do I need to still take a regular backup, apart from the imaging ?

    Use Ontrack Powercontrols for you Bricklevel.

    You can Image to tape if you want. Otherwise use nt backup for backing up images to tape if you dont use a tapeloader.

    Hello prashanthchou,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Remote Server Backup Software.

    We are very sorry for the delay with the response.

    In addition to Jeremy's reply, I would also like to mention that in general Acronis True Image provides you with two different backup approaches:

    - Disk\partition imaging

    Backup is being created on a sector level saving sectors of the hard drive along with the information about hard drive geometry, etc.

    - File-based backup

    Backup is being created on a file\folder level saving files and folders.
