Hi,

We have inherited a client that is using this software. Acronis Backup and Recovery 11.5 on SBS 2011 server.

We have never used it previously (We mainly use Backup Exec or Windows Backup)

Thye currently have 2 x 1tb drive which are on the backup job which seems to be set to backup to path F:\Acronis

We have purchased a new 2TB drive and connected this to the server today. When we connected the 2tb USB drive it automatically created a folder named acronis on the USB drive>?

Do we need to do anything else to make sure the backup works ok tonight?

Please advise. If there is any online tutorials on how to do this it will help as we dont seem to have any license infor for the Acronis software in order to open a support ticket with them

thanks in advance

i forgot to mention that previous backups have been working ok to 1 of the 1tb drives . So we have a good backup from last night.

Secondly the new driev seems to appear ok in the personal vault and shows that it has 2tb space ready for backups?

So hopefully all should work tonight on the backup but please advise!

thanks

As long as Acronis created a backup directory on the drive you do not need to do anything extra.
It has detected the drive. And it is going to use it as target for a backup.
Just let the backup job run.

What does the log say? Is there any failure or warning on status of scheduled job?

You can delete yourself the old backup task and create new one. Pointing it to the new drive.
