    I am needing to restore selected files out of an image backup. The backup process created 2 files, XXXXXXX1.tib and XXXXXXX2.tib. I created two pseudo drives, one for each file. However, the contents seems to be the same for both.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks.

    Hello Tony,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis True Image (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/products/trueimage/).

    Are these two files parts of one image or different images? If former you get normal situation. Acronis True Image takes into account all the parts of the image so if there are two parts it will use them both. You have just explored the image twice and Acronis True Image created two virtual (pseudo) drives.

    If you haven't splitted the image manually the reason why Acronis True Image did that may be because you have stored the image to FAT32 partition and this file system doesn't support files larger than 4Gb. So Acronis True Image devided your image into several parts.

    Thank you.

    Ilya,

    Thanks for the reply. You confirmed what I thought might be happening. TI just used both files (since they were created in the same backup process) to make the virtual drive.

    Thank you.

    Hello Tony,

    Even if you have several image file parts Acronis True Image will create one virtual disk when you explore the image. Apparently, you have mounted the same image twice and that is why you got two drives.

    Thank you.
