I am currently making backups to USB drives for over 40 servers using TI 9.1. I also own a copy of TI Echo and Universal Restore. My question is: what is the procedure (best practice) to take a USB drive with a TIB file and restore to a virtual machine using Hyper-V on Windows 2008? If Hyper-V is not an option, how would I do it with Virtual Server 2005 R2? Would doing a tib to vhd conversion be the best way, or can I boot to the Acronis Recovery CD within a Virtual Machine and see the USB drive from which I can do a restore? (I had problems seeing the USB drive from VS2005R2 when I tried it last week.) I also have Mustang's PE Plug-Ins. I am planning a Disaster Recovery procedure for my clients whom I am backing up with Acronis, and I would rather not re-invent the wheel if there is already an established process to do what I am trying to do... Thanks!
