Option Pause/Resume will allow users to pause backup or restore and proceed from the place where it was paused, helping users save time and resources when creating new backup projects.

Added functionality which allows users to create recurring scheduled jobs when updating Hyper Backup projects. Improved logic for permissions migration which will compare permissions on the source parent object with permissions on the source child object. When permissions are different then the tool will break object permission inheritance on the target and preserves the unique permissions for the target in order to prevent permissions from being inherited from the parent object. This will help to prevent permissions throttling problems on Office 365 locations.
