    I found all the files which in 2004-12-7's backup got the modify time on 2005-01-03...
    Maybe the old files have been covered by the new files?
    Oh my god...

    Hello naxx,

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

    Could you please describe whether you restored the last incremental image or the full one? The main thing is that if you restore the latest incremental image you will get the files with the latest "Modify" date. However, you may choose whether you want to restore (or explore) the latest incremental file or some other image of the set.

    Thank you.

    Select the original full backup image that you made in December to "Explore" in True Image. Note, do not select one of the incrementals make later.

    When the full image is mounted as a virtual drive, examing the files that you are interested in. They should all be as they were in December when you made that full image. When you are satisfied, unplug that image.

    Now, Explore one of the incremental images. You should see that the file now have a later date if you updated them between the time the full image and the incremental were created.
