1799: Changing Backup or Restore Priority in Acronis True Image

use Google Translate

You can set a Normal, High or Low priority to a backup or restore operation

Introduction

The priority of any process running in a system determines the amount of CPU usage and system resources allocated to that process. Decreasing the priority will free more resources for other CPU tasks. Raising priority may speed up the backup or restore process as it takes resources from other currently running processes. The effect will depend on total CPU usage and other factors.
