Opening TIB files

Did your computer fail to open a TIB file? We explain what TIB files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your TIB files.

What is a TIB file?

Files that contain the .tib file extension contain disk images that have been created by the Acronis True Image data backup application.

The TIB files that are created by this software contain an exact replica of the information that is contained on the user's hard drive. If something happens to the hard drive or the user's data becomes lost or corrupt, the data can be restored using the TIB file that the user created.

In addition to restoring an entire hard drive, users can also use the .tib files that have been created by the Acronis True Image software to restore individual folders on the hard drive in case of file loss or corruption.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
