I have made a full disk backup from a pc and I need to restore it to a new hdd that I have hooked up to a different pc. The backup files are on a server. I see the recover options, but I don't see how to get it to recover to the hdd located on a different pc. Thanks for any help.

Hello Thomas.

Thank you for posting this question on Acronis forums.

You can either start recovery by using the web interface. Please note that Acronis Agent should be installed on a target machine that should be online at the moment of recovery. 

Otherwise, please follow recovery procedure with bootable media which should be created beforehand and used tfor booting the target machine with it.
