Turning off a backup job

You can turn off a backup and re-enable it later. When you turn off a backup, it will not run according to its defined schedule, if it has one. When a backup is turned off, triggered events will not run it, nor can you run it manually.

You can also delete a defined backup (not recovery points).

See Deleting backup jobs.
