I recently installed True image 8 on XP PRO sp3 and tried to mount an old backup with "explore image" option.
After executing this option I get the clock face "please wait". I've waited quite some time without a response.
The system locks me out. I'm forced to hit reset.

Can anything be done to mount some old backups.

Best regards

Are you able to use the mouning option, which I think is 'attach' in v8 instead of 'explore'? Do you use Windows Explorer or a 3rd party file manager?

I have Acronis 2017. Yesterday I tried to recover a file with no success although things started our OK. Then the tib file was reported as empty even though explorer showed it was not. The scheduled backup did not run at 3:00AM this morning as iot usually does. When I tried to open Acronis from the icon, I received the message "Cannot create a database" with no options other than OK. I really need help on this problem. -

Are you using Windows and if so what version and build?

Assuming Windows, has there been an update recently?

Have you installed in new programs or any other programs updated themselves?

If you open Windows Services (Windows button + r, type in services.msc) are the Acronis services running?
