Special Information

Acronis True Image is disk imaging software, (see "Disk image") developed by Acronis, that creates backups and recovers PC systems.

The software allows a user to create an image of a disk while it is running Microsoft Windows or offline by booting from CD/DVD, USB flash drives, PXE, or other bootable media.

As a disk imaging software, True Image can restore the previously captured image to another disk, replicating the structure and contents to the new disk, also allowing disk cloning and partition resizing, as well if the new disk is of different capacity.

The backups are in a proprietary and non-documented file format which uses a .tib filename extension.
