[SOLVED] Accessing .TIB from vmware-host VM share folder
My OS is MAC OSX and to be able to run ABR 11a, I run Windows 7x32 through VMWare Fusion.
My huge .TIB file is located within MAC OSX folder, and because of this, I need to "share" the MAC folder so that it can be read within Windows 7x32 VM.
The problem is, ABR 11 unable to read \\vmware-host\ folder...
I tried to map \\vmware-host\ to specific drive (Y: for example) but still unaccessible from ABR.
Anyone know how to access \\vmware-host\ share folder from ABR?
(Just in case - the same is for vmware workstation running on a Widnows host). Mapping drives support is not implemented in ABR11 yet. May be will work if you share is an SMB share.
I found a resolution using Windows mklink (Windows Symbolic Link creator) command.
The following is what I've done:
- mklink /d
- mklink /d c:\temp \\vmware-host\TIB\
I hope this helps everyone else who wants to utilise VMWare and want to import Acronis TIB
Nice workaround. However it's only for Vista and above, as symbolic links are not available in XP (or Server 2003)
Yup indeed, I wish Acronis allow recovery from network drive ^_*
Rats! I had so hoped your little mklink trick for ABR would get me past the Acronis TI issue described at https://forum.acronis.com/forum/acronis-true-image-2018-forum/please-help-vmware-guest-backup-host-share wherein Acronis True Image won't write backups to a VMware Workstation guest VM's accessible directory on the VMware host machine. Alas: TIH2019 won't even recognize a Windows symbolic directory link as a directory that it can "see."
Back to the drawing board...
