* Backups can only be restored. Other operations can be limited. It is necessary to create a new backup plan / archive.

(!) Acronis does not guarantee forward compatibility. Backups created with a newer build/version of the product may not be supported by older builds/versions. For example, restoring a backup created with Acronis True Image Build 8163 may fail with Acronis True Image Build 8076, or restoring a backup created with Acronis True Image Home 2011 may fail with Acronis True Image Home 2010.

(!) Acronis guarantees backup compatibility for different Acronis backup products within the same version. E.g. Acronis Backup Advanced 11.5 for Linux Server will work with backups created by Acronis Backup Advanced 11.5 for PC.

(!) Acronis Snap Deploy works only with images of the whole hard disk.

(!) Backups created with Acronis Recovery for MS SQL Server are not compatible with Acronis Backup Advanced 11.5 for SQL (Acronis Backup & Recovery 11.5 for MS SQL Server).
