How do I create a local backup?

This is a continuation of our previous posts:

 

The question we are tackling today in detail is “How do I create a local backup?”

Fast recovery is always a concern for customers on a slow internet connection. That’s why Sleepless gold platform allows for a local backup to be created as well as a cloud backup.

To do this please login to your account by going to https://cloud.acronis.com/login

Step 1: Once logged in click on the green ‘Manage Backups’ button above your plan:

Step 2: To create a local backup you will need to create a new backup plan. Click on backup and click on create:

Step 3:  Under “What to Back up” select local and select the local folder you would like you backups saved too. The schedule for this can be different to your cloud backup. If you don’t have a cloud backup setup already, and require one, simply turn ‘Replicate Backups’ to On. Apply this to enable the plan.
