47226: Acronis True Image on Mac: Restoring

Boot your Mac into OS X Utilities and select "Recover from Acronis Backup"

Introduction

Make sure you have a backup and Acronis Bootable Media:

Partitioning

When restoring to an unpartitioned drive (for example, a new drive), create partitions before restoring:

  1. Start or restart your Mac and hold down the Option key while Mac is starting. The boot menu will be displayed.
  2. Choose Disk Utility.
  3. Create partitions on the disk (see this article for help). You need to create a partition structure matching the one of the backed up disk. For example, the backed up disk had an EFI partition, a System partition and a RecoveryHD. You need to create 3 partitions on the new disk matching the partitions on the old one.

Solution

  1. Connect your removable drive with Acronis Bootable Media to your Mac;
  2. Start or restart your Mac and hold down the Option key while Mac is starting. The boot menu will be displayed.
  3. Choose Acronis Media as a device to boot from.
  4. Select Recover from True Image Backup:

  5. Locate the backup that contains the data to recover;
  6. From the Version list, select the backup version from which you want to recover your Mac. The contents of the version are displayed;
  7. Select the check boxes next to the partitions that you want to recover;
  8. Select a destination for each partition. By default, Acronis True Image recovers partitions to the original location;
  9. To start recovery, click Recover, and then confirm that you want to erase all data on the destination partitions;
  10. When recovery is complete, restart your Mac.
