Activating online backup subscriptions

To be able to back up a machine to the online storage, you need to purchase and activate a subscription to the Acronis Backup & Recovery Online service. You can purchase subscriptions on the Acronis Web site or from an Acronis reseller.

Before activating a subscription, please take into account the following considerations:

  • As soon as a subscription is activated, its subscription period starts. To avoid losing subscription time, activate the subscription only when you are ready to back up the machine.
  • If a machine already has a subscription, the new subscription will replace the old one. You can reassign the old subscription to a different machine—see “Reassigning an activated subscription” later in this section.
