    This is driving me crazy and it must be so simple that I can't see it.
    I want to backup a single file and restore it to a new location. The file lets say is named tab.dll and resides in
    d:\download\tab.dll
    I want to restore the file to c:\temp - but I can't restore the file without also restoring the directory structure- so I get

    c:\temp\download\tab.dll
    I have tried deselecting the folders when I do the restore but that doesn't work. I have also read the help file to no avail.

    This is a simplified version of the problem.
    Thanks for any help

    4. Select a folder on your computer where you want to restore selected folders/files (a target
    folder). You can restore data to its original location or choose a new location, if necessary.
    When you choose a new location, the selected items by default will be restored without
    restoring the original, absolute path. You may also wish to restore the items with their entire
    folder hierarchy. If such is the case, select Restore absolute paths.
    5. Select files and folders to restore. You can choose to restore all data or browse the
    archive contents and select the desired folders or files.


    This is what the help file states. I don't want to restore the absolute path, but I see now way to deselect that option. BTW I am using TI10- That doesn't matter does it?

    Thanks

    Gary,

    For just restoring several files (or folders) from an image, it's easier to just Explore the image and copy & paste the files.

    You can't Mount a Files & Folders (data) backup, but you can Explore it. Just select that option, find what you want, copy it, browse to where you want it and paste it.

    I need to boot up off the boot cd in order to replace this file as I can't do it when Win. is working. It seems that you can't do the explore thing when you boot up off the cd.
    Thanks

    Hello garwood,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that the ability to restore separate files without restoring absolute path was only implemented in Acronis True Image 11.0 Home. Acronis True Image 10.0 does not have that function.

    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.
