I have been using Acronis True Image 9 to backup a windows xp machine to an external usb hard drive. The hard drive crashed on the Windows XP machine and I am trying to recover the files from the .tib file from the full backup to a windows 7 machine.
Here is the files that I have:
laptop4.tib -- Full Backup Friday
laptop5.tib - Differential Backup Monday
laptop6.tib - Differential Backup Tuesday
laptop7.tib - Differential Backup Wednesday
laptop8.tib - Differential Backup Thursday
When I try to mount laptop4.tib I get the following error "Cannot assign a drive letter to a partition from the backup drive". So then I copied the backup files to a folder on the local hard drive and I get the same error.
So then I booted using the acronis true image rescue media (CD) and selected laptop4.tib and selected the option to select specific files. Then I get an error message to insert volume 1.
Any ideas how I can mount the tib file and recover specific files?
