How do I run the Acronis Info Report Utility?

The Acronis Info utility output (AcronisInfo.zip) contains system/hardware information, event logs and other data needed to diagnose Acronis related problems. In some cases, you may be asked by Kaseya Support to gather this information. 


Please follow the steps below to collect the necessary information.

1.    Log onto the computer and and run the utility manually as described here:  http://kb.acronis.com/content/2707

2.    If you are using Kaseya Backup 4.0 with the latest hotfixes, The Acronis Info Utility can be run from the Kaseya console:

a.    Select to Backup > Schedule Volumes 

b.    Alt+click on the Synthetic Full icon in the Schedule area to enter the “hidden” config area

c.    Click on the Diagnostics tab

d.    Select the machine and click the Run Acronis Info on selected machines button
(this runs UI on the end-user’s machine, so you may want to inform your end user prior to clicking the button
