Application consistent backup, not full server

Thread needs solution

It has been a while since I had to create or change settings in Acronis.

A client has just joined our services.
They have a server with quite a large amount of data.
I would like to install Acronis on it, just for their SQL data and AD.
However, I can only select application consistent backups when I select Full Server backup.
This would result in a large amount of data needing to be uploaded to the cloud, which they don't have the internet connection for.
Is there any other way I can do an application consistent backup without doing a full server backup?
I have used the search button, but I might have put in the wrong search options as it did not come back with any usable results.

Thank you.

Hello Ivo ITC,

it's possible to create backups of SQL databases, if an Agent for SQL is installed on the machine with the SQL. Check out

A machine running Active Directory Domain Services can be protected by application-aware backup only.
