Pause Backups is a handy feature for when you're not expecting a backup to run for a period of time (for example, during scheduled maintenance) and you'd like to proactively avoid setting off alarm bells in your email inbox.

Follow the steps below to pause a backup in your Backup Radar account:

  1. Under Manage, select Edit Backups.

  4. Click the Pause backups toggle to enable the pause feature for your backup. Choose a start and end date for your pause, add a reason for pausing, and click Save.

Your backup will remain paused until the end date arrives or until you manually switch off the pause using the Pause backups toggle in the Advanced Settings tab.
