Windows 7, Acronis Backup & Recovery 11

Acronis had been running an incremental backup for a few years. It recently stopped with the following errors:

I tried deleting the vault and reconfiguring it. I tried deleting all of the data in the vault. I've tried changing the VSS type and not using VSS. I've run disk scans, etc.

There is also an incremental backup running to a local disk. That continues to work fine.

Any helpful ideas? I've tried searching the forum, but none of those ideas have worked for me, though I haven't tried uninstalling Acronis or deactivating the cloud subscription.

Thank you,

Thank you for your posting! I'd suggest starting the troubleshooting with checking the prerequisites:

1. Check license

Go to console->"Actions"->"Activate online backup subscription"->specify credentials to login to Acronis Online Backup Storage->Check subscription. 

2. Check certificate

Valid certificate should be downloaded:

  • Windows Vista/2008+: C:\ProgramData\Acronis\BackupAndRecovery\OnlineBackup\%email% 
  • Windows XP/2003: C:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\ApplicationData\Acronis\BackupAndRecovery\OnlineBackup\%email% 

Re-creation of a certificate can also help to resolve the issue. To re-create a cert, you should rename or move the existing .crt-file and then start backup; a new certificate will be automatically saved to the folder.

3. Check ports

Required ports should be open: verify them with the Cloud Verification Tool (use  AcronisCloudUS2Check.exe).

Otherwise you can find in this KB article how to check ports manually.

If all steps above have been executed and issue still persists, contact Acronis support team for investigation. 

Thank you,
