Hi, guys.
I have a problem. Recently I've purchased Acronis True Image to make an image of several partitions (not only from my comp). I made a backup on my external drive, backup procedure passed successfully. The problem is when I opened my external drive I saw 10 image files there but I made full backup only one time and I haven't enabled any splitting options. It is very inconvenient for me to have 10 image files, please help!!!!!!!

A very old version I used would create 2 files per image. Do you have 5 partitions by any chance?

hi there
well, sounds like External Drive Files system issue.
Is it Fat system ?
most likely it is, so what u should is just format ur external drive and set it's file system as NTFS.
hope it will help

If it is FAT Acronis has to split the files because you can only create files of the size of 2Gb max. If you use NTFS you don't have that limitation to the file size.
