In the settings -> Throttle Backup activity with the system is busy, would be nice to have customizable priority etc.

Adnan,
Can you elaborate please? I eager to hear any thoughts on the process priorities for the Endpoint Backup or maybe any use case behind it. Thank you in advance

What does throttle do? There is nothing much on the screen. But if we can have priorities, e.g. High priority, Medium, Low etc. for the backup

Adnan,
Throttling option is used to set an Endpoint process priority, all further throttling is happening within the OS task manager. Checked (the default) - Endpoint process will run with a background priority. Unchecked - Endpoint will run with Low priority, which is a default for most of the Windows applications. Basically, the higher/ lower you set the process priority, the more/less system resources will be allocated to it by the OS.
