Recovering partitions protected with Acronis Nonstop Backup

You can recover partitions protected by Acronis Nonstop Backup as follows. Let’s first recover a data partition in Windows.

  1. Start Acronis True Image Home 2011.
  2. Click Explore and recover in the Nonstop Backup box on the main screen.
  3. Select the backup version you want to recover on the time line at the Disks and partitions tab.
  4. Select the partition to recover and click Recover.
  5. The further operations are similar to those performed when recovering data partitions or disks from a “classic” image backup. For further information see Recovering partitions and disks.

Depending on the circumstances, recovery of the system partition may be performed both in Windows and after booting from your rescue media (e.g. when Windows does not start). Recovery in Windows is similar to recovery of a data partition. However, you will need to reboot. Usually, it is safer to recover the system partition using the rescue media.

When using the rescue media, the recovery procedure is very similar to the procedure used for recovering the system partition from a “classic” disk or partition backup. The only difference is the Recovery point step which allows you to select the point in time from which you can recover the system partition.

Acronis True Image Home 2011 safe version does not support recovery from Nonstop Backup storages.
