Script execution parameters

Scripts are executed by the TrueImageTerminal.exe utility located in the Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 installation folder (i.e. C:\Program Files\Acronis\BackupAndRecovery). This utility is also used to monitor backup progress.

TrueImageTerminal execution parameters:

TrueImageTerminal.exe [arguments]

Arguments include the following:

/help – outputs help information about TrueImageTerminal.exe parameters.

/progress – outputs the progress of backup operations run either from Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 graphics user interface, or from the script.

/execute: [script file name] – executes a script. If there are several scripts to be executed, they are queued. An example for executing MyBackup.tis script:

TrueImageTerminal.exe /execute:C:\MyBackup.tis

/nowait – an optional script execution argument. Enables to terminate TrueImageTerminal before backup is finished. Example:

TrueImageTerminal /execute:C:\MyBackup.tis /nowait

By pressing Ctrl+C you can forcibly turn off backup progress output and switch TrueImageTerminal to a background operation.

You can terminate the backup operation executed by TrueImageTerminal by pressing Ctrl+B.
