    First of all, I am using ATI Ver 8.0 (build 889).

    I have two backup files. "backup.tib" and "backup2.tib". The second file is part of an incremental backup to the first file. Lets say I want to restore the computer back to the date of the first backup and not restore any of the newer files. Is that the way it works?

    Thanks!

    When you restore, if you select the full backup file and not the incremental file, you retstore to that date. If you select the incremental file, you restore to that date.

    You can select any file you like in the backup set. Acronis will show you a list with backups & their time stamp. Choose the right one there and start backup.

    Doesn't matter if you choose the first "base" backup in an incremental set, or the last incremental of the set.

    Just be sure you never delete a file in a set!

    Hello Tonio,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Actually, you may delete one of the incremental images and you still will be able to restore all the previous incrementals and the full image as well. However, all the incrementals created after the one you deleted will be unrestorable.

    Thank you.
