I recently migrated from another backup software to Acronis, and I just started looking into how to go about recovering a system from backup. Using Acronis Cyber Protect, I do not see any options to restore in my menus. 

 

My setup is rather clunky to work with do to security requirements, all of my systems are stand alone with very limited time to take them down. So what I wanted to do was using one of my other computers restore a blank hard drive with the backup that I have taken from one of the other machines. Now I may be missing something as I am somewhat new to this software, but following the knowledge base articles I do not have a recover option on my console. 

 

Any help would be great.

Hello Clearence!

You either need an agent installed and online where you want to restore, or booted into an Acronis bootable media to be able to restore. With a failing OS boot you only have the latter option, or a previously activated recovery environment.

Normally you'd select the online machine from devices and then you can recover backups belonging to that computer. However you want to restore another backup, so you need to navigate to the backup in backups/locations and when restoring select the computer where you want it restored.

Thanks for the response Peter, I have gotten bootable media create, and loaded it up. But now when I look on the hard drive where I would expect to see my .tib files, they do not show up on the backup agent. But if I look at the drive in windows explorer I can see all of the back up files. So I am not sure what the issue is at this point.

Where is this hard drive you store your tib files? Is this an external USB drive? Can you attach some screenshots?
