    Is there a way to restore files from a previous incremental after another incremental has been created?

    Example:

    Create full backup with:

    trueimagecmd --create --filename:full.tib --partition:2-1

    echo "some important data" > /filesystem/foo.bar

    Create an incremental backup:

    trueimagecmd --create --incremental --filename:full.tib --partition:2-1

    Remove the important file:

    rm /filesystem/foo.bar

    Create another incremental backup:

    trueimagecmd --create --incremental --filename:full.tib --partition:2-1

    Now, is there any way to restore foo.bar from the prior incremental?

    Hello Logan5555,

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

    In order to recover this "foo.bar" you should move your second incremental file to another location. The idea is to make Acronis True Image think that the second incremental doesn't exist. After that you can browse the image and it will contain your "foo.bar" file. Then you can move your second incremental file back.

    Thank you.
