Backup Resume

If a backup operation does not finish in its entirety, then it is considered incomplete and will be marked in red as a failed job, or in white as a paused job.

If a backup is in this incomplete state, there are two options available.

First, you can select this backup project, right click and choose Resume, or click on the Resume button on the Hyper Backup tab toolbar.  This will continue the backup process from the beginning of the mailbox or OneDrive for Business site that the previous attempt stopped on.  When the resume operation is complete, the resulting snapshot will include all the objects as defined in the project configuration.

Second, you can choose not to run the Resume function for the current backup, leaving it to run as usual on the next update.  This will mean that content from the previous incomplete backup will be missed and cannot be resumed at a later time.
