Good morning, I'm starting my apprenticeship with acronis true image 12.5

When it comes to backing up files on other servers, it's very clear to me, but you need to recover a specific file, need to go back to the entire backup plan:

Plane: 2 ° 4 ° 5 °
1- Server1: c: MySystem / User
2- Server1: c: MySystem / Data / Files

I would like to return a specific backup on: Server1: c: MySystem / Data / Files (ex: costs.xls)
I have to go back to Plan 2 Server1: c: MySystem / Data / Files
Or just return the specific file in the costs.xls case?

Thank you

Hello Wilherme,

welcome to Acronis forums!

In order to restore any specific file/folder from a server backup from the Backup section please follow this procedure:

- select a source of this backup (backup location) and open it by clicking on its hyperlink

- select a backup archive you want to recover from and click on Show backups and select a Recovery point

click on Recover button and choose Files/Folders from a drop-down list

- navigate to the file's location and click on Recover

- select a target location where you place this file.

Please read this and this chapters in Acronis Backup 12.5 documentation for more details.

There is also a simple way to extract any file from a local backup (that is stored locally) of your server described here in documentation.

OK, when the backup is done on disk I can open the file choosing and backing up easily.

But when Backup is sent to the FITA drive I can only restore the routine that is sent to FITA. Would you like to restore a specific file within the routine that was sent to FITA? Or when the backup is sent to FITA does not have this possibility to open and restore only a specific file?

Thank you

Hello Wilherme.

As I understood, these FITA drives are tapes.

When you create a disk backup on a tape drive, you can enable File recovery from disk backups stored on tapes option in order to be able to recover a separate file from there.

Otherwise, if you created a disk backup without this option enabled, you can Rescan the tape with this disk backup and make this option enabled.

Both these operations create the supplementary file on your local drive that stores database with hashes for a disk backup stored on tape. 

Please also note that recovering an individual file from a disk backup located on tape is a very time-consuming operation.
