How to stop a running or stalled backup


#1

Error

If a backup is stuck on a running progress, there is normally a file named running which should be deleted in either of these locations.

Fixes

If the backup is running, delete the file named running or create a file named stop.
After a few minutes, the backup should stop.

File location:

Windows server version
C:\Users\username\ .obm\ipc\BackupSet{BackupSetID}

Windows desktop version
C:\Users\username\ .acb\ipc\BackupSet{BackupSetID}

MAC
${User_Profile}.obm\ipc\BackupSet\Backupset_id


Stop this process in task manager bJW.exe
