It is recommended to use Acronis Backup & Recovery for database backups

This article applies to:

  • Acronis True Image Home 2010
  • Acronis True Image Home 2011

Introduction

Since there is no Volume Snapshot Service (VSS) support in Acronis True Image Home 2010 or Acronis True Image Home 2011, it is strongly recommended to use Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 to create a backup of a system with any VSS-compliant databases running in it.

You can still back up a system with database with Acronis True Image Home 2010 or Acronis True Image Home 2011 using pre/post commands.

If the database that you are going to back up supports transactions, the transactions active at the moment of creating a snapshot may become corrupted.

This means that after the restore, the database will roll back such transactions to make it consistent. Data of only active transactions will be lost.

To avoid losing the active transactions you can use pre/post commands to stop the database before the backup starts and restart it after the backup is completed.
