Job paused for 24+ hours?
This job runs weekly and consistenly at 8:30 PM every Friday night and typically takes about 20 minutes to run.
What could possibly have caused that delay between steps #3 and #4? No one was using the computer from 8 PM on Friday night until Saturday evening around 9:45 PM.

Eliezer, sorry but impossible to tell why the delay happened with just the information shown.
What version of Windows OS is involved, what version of Acronis True Image?
I would suggest reviewing the Windows event logs for the period of the delay to see if that holds any clues. ATI works within the constraints of the Windows OS and any delay shown in the log will either be caused by events in the OS or else the settings chosen for the backup task.
