Acronis Recovery Task Fails: Failed to resolve the path to the backup in the archive

Experts-

I am testing a physical to virtual conversion for DR purposes and keep running into the same error during the Recovery data task: "Failed to resolve the path to the backup in the archive." The backup itself seems to run fine each with no errors and I have tested backing up to a network share and a local drive on the server itself and it yields the same result each time. I have also upgraded to the latest 11.7 version of Acronis Backup Advanced. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

TIA

I would suggest a different product such as Macrium Reflect.  Issues such as this are why I quit using Acronis several years back.  Being able to restore backups is just as important, if not more important, than making them.

Thanks for the suggestion, had not heard of that product before. Does it have the ability to transfer an image of a physical server and then transfer to VM environment for immediate spin-up? My beef with Acronis has been the same as yours, no issues running a backup but the recovery is a whole different story.

Macrium says that ImgToVHD does this.  I have not personally used it, though.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Amazing, finally got the Acronis recovery process to kickoff. Had to use IP instead of DNS from my AMS server and choose centralized vault. Go figure. I am going to look more into the product you suggested in the meantime. I will reward points for an assisted solution.

I'm not looking for points here - just want to add my voice to Klahn's - I used to use Acronis, but after too many adventures with unrecoverable Acronis backups, I switched to Macrium Reflect, and have never looked back.  Reflect has been 100% bulletproof, it's never failed me.
