What is tibx file? How to open tibx files?

File type specification:

Backup file type icon Backup file type

File extension tibx is used for a new type of backup files introduced in Acronics True Image 2020. Both TIBX and the previous TIB files are still used in Acronis 2020/2021 albeit based on certain rules.

TIBX format is reserved for:

  • Entire PC
  • Entire Mac
  • Disks and partitions (both PC and Mac)

Old TIB backups will still remain as they are even if you install newer version of True Image, the TIBX format will only be used for new backups.

The main difference is that TIBX format is used for a full backup chain, which increases tre speed of backup and recovery.
