Hi Daniel,

no it is not possible to rename the existing backups in the cloud.

You can only specify the name of the archive during backup plan creation.

Hi Natalia,

Thank you for your answer.

I think that this option should be implemented in a future version.

Hello,

I would like to request this feature also: the ability to rename a Cloud backup after it is created. It would be most helpful for managing large backups. Thanks.

It's been years and this simple feature is still missing.

I have one computer named as "My files" and another named as "My folders", and I can't tell which is which without going through the records.

Having to do a new backup from scratch just to change the name is highly inconvenient due to archive versioning.  Just add the feature already.

Hello Gabriel,

Thank you for your posting! Currently this option cannot be implemented due to architectual restrictions of Acronis Cloud. I've registered your feedback in our internal system, so that my colleagues from the product management can have a better picture of customers needs. Thank you!

I miss this option too. IMO this a basic function people expect.
Maybe they can implement some meta fields  for "display name", "comment" etc.

There is now an "Add a Comment" icon in ATIH 2017 (a comment balloon in the upper left corner of the backup summary screen) that you can use to augment the Cloud Backup name/description.
