Hi people, I'm new to this forum and a new Acronis True Image Workstation Echo user since yesterday. I will get straight to the point. I installed the Console on my computer and from inside Console i installed the agent on a client computer running XP. I also installed Backup Server on a large file server. I set up the backup locations to a specific folder, i created an administrator profile and from my computer i connected to the client PC and set up a backup task with name TESTBACKUP and immediately executed it. Everything went fine, the backup of 15GB data finished within 15 minutes and that is amazing! 3 files were created on the Backup Server. The files are: B37371E7-C06E-4038-9A72-37FE3F237697 68D8BE4F-0D48-47B7-B23F-7CD461A5E38E F2BCE15A-2C82-4A70-9ED4-F6E19231E7F4 with no TIB extention. I read that i cannot mount/explore files that reside on the Backup Server. In my opinion this should not happen, but anyway... I connected to the Backup Server, selected the backup archive with name TESTBACKUP and pressed the Export on top of that. A window poped up that instructed me to "Choose the name of the external archive file:". What kind of file this should be? Is it a file that will be created by the exported data? Is it an existing file? Anyway, my problem is that i cannot extract files from archives on the Backup Server. I've read the help all the way down, but i haven't a clue. If files cannot be extracted from archives that are on the Backup Server, then i can't use Acronis. Users will be asking to extract a file, and i won't be able to do it, unless i perform a full restore on a temporary hard disk. Any help?
