How can I pause all Macrium activity until I resolve a Windows 10 issue with directories?
Microsoft OneDrive has screwed up my directories.
I have modifed the "Macrium Full Schedule Settings" schedule so that, as I understand it, Macrium will not run again until October. However, isn't there a more straightforward way?

You may be able to do that in Windows Task Scheduler (that's what MR uses when you set up a scheduled backup).  Right-clicking a task offers a "Disable" function.  It can then be Enabled again when needed.  I would suggest waiting for confirmation on that from one of the more knowledgeable forum members.

Open Reflect, go to the Scheduled Backups tab, right-click each scheduled task and select Disable. Then set a reminder to re-enable them, because you might be surprised how many people forget to do that.

Played around with this a bit.  Interestingly, it seems to work either way.  Disabling the task within Reflect will cause the task to show as disabled in both Reflect and Task Scheduler.  Disabling the task within Task Scheduler also achieves the same result in both locations.  Is there an advantage doing it one way or the other?

Not that I know of. As far as I know, Reflect is just saving you a trip into Task Scheduler and having to look through a potentially large list of tasks and figure out which one pertains to your definition file and the correct backup type if you only want to disable one, for example.

Probably simpler to just work within the Reflect UI, as you suggest.

Much thanks. I found this to be the best way.

"Quick & dirty", temporarily rename reflect.exe in the program folder.
GO
