The Jira Cloud backup manager limits how often backups can be created.
In Server a Jira Administrator can reset this timer, but in Cloud this is a restricted function
This can be limiting during migration projects where a Cloud site needs to be backed up multiple times in a short period during a weekend migration, or prior to an import etc.
See this knowledge base article for further information: JIRA: Backup frequency is limited. You can not make another backup right now

You can uncheck the box to include Attachments, Ava**tars & Logos and you will be able to kick off a new backup
