Hi All,

This is my first try at Acronis Cloud backup. My initial cloud backup is quite large and will take a few days. I also want to backup locally though as part of my disaster management.

How do I get ATIC2017 to pause the cloud backup to perform the local backup, then restart the cloud backup after the local has completed?

Open Acronis 2017, select the backup to the Cloud, and there is a "Pause" button on the right hand bottom side of the right hand window. You can restart the Cloud backup once the local backup is completed. I cannot remember if there  is a resume button in the same place or you just select backup now (may depend on if you shut down the Acronis window or just minimise it).
