I've made several backups of older 2000 and XP machines I've phased out over the last year or so.
These were done with 'Seagate DiskWizard' from Hiren's Boot CD (Acronis True Image Home (v9.5 I think)) and produced .tib files which I've archived and kept.
One of my users (several months later) decides she is missing some internet favourites and program settings from her old install (or has removed them since my migration and wants them back).
I have downloaded a trial of 'Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5' with the intensions of converting the .tib files to .vhd and booting them when required (probably with Windows Virtual PC).
Several places on the Acronis site mention converting easily, but I'm unable to see the option in B&R 11.5. Going a different route, B&R 11.5 does not identify the .tib files I have when pointed at the location, reporting 'There are no items to show in this view.' for both 'Data' and 'Archive' views in the Recovery 'Data Selection'.
