Hi, can i know if the TIB file is independent of the xml file when it comes to restoration?

Can I just copy only the TIB over to somewhere and ignore the xml & catalog files? What are the implications?

Thanks..

Catalog contains catalog (that you can see on the 'data view' tab). Without it you can use 'archive view' instead. It will be regenerated on the next backup or manually by 'catalog now' function.
Without xml files archives are restorable, too, however xml files will be regenerated automatically during restore and will not contain some information from the original files. For example, if archive contains several full backups, new xml file will be generated for each chain of full and dependent backups. Archive name will be changed to something like Archive_2013_01_20_ ... (i.e. orignal name + date) If you need to continue backing up to the archive, xml files must not be deleted.

Hello all,

I read somewhere in this Forum that the .tib file is retorable even without the XML file. Is that possible in Acronis 11? Because when I try to restore a TIB file not having the XML file, I can not see it from the GUI, and therefore can not select the file to restore.

Is there an alternative method to do it?

Thanks in advance

Does 'refresh' button pressed several times help or not?

Thanks
