Upgraded to 6.1.1. build-3533064 and lost the option to convert Acronis True Image files

Jump to solution

Hi

Upgraded a day or two ago, and tried to convert a .tib file (WIn XP Pro 32) but there is no longer any options other than

Source "Powered off" dropdown options:

VMware Infrastructure virtual machine

VMware Workstation or other VMware virtual machine

Hyper-V server

The .tib file is fine; Acronis gives it a clean bill of health.

System: Win7 Pro 64 SP1 fully up-to-date; Intel i7 3770k @ 3,.5GHz; 16GB Corsair Vengeance 2133 MHz; 2x Samsung EVO 512 GB; 1x WD 1TB Caviar Black;

Gigabyte Windforce HD7950 3GB graphics, Radeon software 16.12.2.

I had no problems at all with the previous installation (quite old, dated from ~2014). Has the ability to convert .tib files been removed from the stanadlaone free converter?

TIA

Terence

Thank you, Richardson Smiley Happy

I hadn't seen that (VMware.com is something of a maze).

I still have a copy of my original installation - VMware-converter-en-5.5.3-2183569.exe - so I'll revert to that.

Odd - many SME/SB & corporate customers use Acronis, so VMware may be cutting its own throat to some extent.

Cheers

Terence
