FTP connection

Acronis True Image Home 2011 allows you to store your backups on FTP servers.

To create a new FTP connection, when selecting a backup storage click New FTP connection, and in the opened window provide:

  • Path to the FTP server, for example: my.server.com
  • Port
  • User name
  • Password

To check your settings click the Test connection button. The computer will try to connect to the specified FTP server. If the test connection has been established, click the Connect button to add the FTP connection.

The created FTP connection will appear in the folder tree. Select the connection and browse for the backup storage that you want to use.

Please, be aware that the mere opening of an FTP server’s root folder does not bring you to your home directory.

An FTP server must allow passive mode file transfers. For data to be recovered directly from an FTP server, the backup must consist of files no greater than 2GB each.

The firewall settings of the source computer should have Ports 20 and 21 opened for the TPC and UDP protocols to function. The Routing and Remote Access Windows service should be disabled.
