Backup Replication - Location vs. Backups

Thread solved

Backup replication plans showing different behavior on "Location" and "Backup" based replication.

When a "Location" is chosen for replication all backups in that location will be replicated in sequence - only one activity.

"Backup" based replication immediately starts an activity for every selected backup. Only the first activity succeeds, others are pending and waiting for the preceding activity to complete. These activities are (all of them) failing with timeout after 10 minutes.

Is there any solution to replicate "Backups" the same ways as "Location" based?

We don't want to have all backups in the "Location" replicated. Backups are replicated to Acronis Cloud - in case it matters.


Thanks in advance and best regards,

Hi Peter,

in task details it says:

result: {
    "code": "timedout",
    "error": {
        "domain": "task-manager",
        "code": "timedOut",
        "context": {
            "reason": "queue-timeout-expired",
            "span": ""
