Removing Acronis True Image, its components and related files and folders from Linux

This article applies to:


  1. Remove all modules from dkms. For example:

    # dkms status
    snapapi26, 0.7.17, 2.6.9-1.667, i686: installed
    # dkms remove -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.17 --all

    (!) If you are running 2.4 kernel, the module name will be snapapi, not snapapi26

  2. Remove all Acronis RPMs (ignore all messages about the non-presence of packages):

    # rpm -e --allmatches --nodeps MediaBuilder
    # rpm -e --allmatches --nodeps acronis-glibc
    # rpm -e --allmatches --nodeps dkms
    # rpm -e --allmatches --nodeps TrueImageAgent
    # rpm -e --allmatches --nodeps AcronisAgentLinux
    # rpm -e --allmatches --nodeps TrueImageClient
    # rpm -e --allmatches --nodeps snapapi26_modules

    (!) On 2.4 kernels use snapapi_modules instead of snapapi26_modules

  3. Remove all files and folders related to Acronis software:

    # rm -Rf /etc/Acronis
    # rm -Rf /var/lib/Acronis
    # rm -Rf /usr/lib/Acronis
    # rm -Rf ~/Acronis
    # rm -Rf /usr/src/snapapi*
