Create bootable media with Acronis Bootable Media Builder to get access to all storage locations


Starting from build 10330, some locations are not available on Acronis Bootable Media downloaded from Acronis Account:

  • Storage Node
  • Tape locations
  • SFTP

Acronis Backup 12.5 uses the same downloadable bootable media for both on-premise and cloud deployments. This uniform bootable media contains only the features that are available in both types of deployments. Some of the features are not available in cloud deployments yet (see product documentation) so the dowloaded bootable media has less features than the bootable media created from the product.
