    Hello,

    1. I have configured a backup location via the Management Console
    2. I run an image backup (not file), destination being my backup server's location, something like "bsp://myserver.com.demo/BackupServer"
    3. When the image completes, the backup location contains a bunch of files such as "6F5B0004-B675-4862-8DFB-9AFE9CD7E336", each one around 2GB in size.
    4. When I go to mount a volume, it asks me to point to a .TIB file, but no .TIB file was created. I do not get the option to select my backup server location ("bsp://myserver.com.demo/BackupServer") to mount as a drive letter.

    So the question is - can you mount images that were created by the backup server, rather than images that were created as .TIB files?

    Thanks for help ( infopower),
    Laurent

    Those file names look suspiciously like the 'instance' created in system registry that points/allocates the drive name and letters. If the drive does not exist such as a hidden drive or a non NTFS drive, but Windows 'knows' about them, it seems to create 'placeholders' in registry.

    After all that I don't have an answer on how to connect the entry back to a drive letter. I'm pretty sure if that problem were solved your *.tib files would appear out of the gloom.
