I started a backup manually, but now would like to stop it since we can't access any public folders during backup. I can't figure out how to do so. Thanks in advance for any help.

afaik, the only option is to kill the mailserver process in the console / task manager and restart the server... this can however lead to lost mails should be only done after disconnecting every user from the server first… and of course that backup you just killed is corrupted. bottom line: better not do it Wink

mercifully I didn't have to do that, the backup process gradually sped up and finished in a few hours instead of the 15-20 it was initially estimating. So I learned a lesson and dodged a bullet. Thanks.

I know this is an old post, but if anyone is looking for this...

Renaming the backup folder seemed to do the trick, at least on a Mac. I renamed the folder and as soon as the current file was completed (it was on file 6 of probably a couple hundred when I realized I hit the wrong button), it returned an error and stopped.

So far, no ill effects and a subsequent differential backup seems to be going ok.

However, the backup I stopped was one I had manually started (the files started with "C"). I already had a full backup and thought I could manually run a differential by selecting it from the list and clicking Run Now. Apparently, this button always does a full backup but prefixes the files with "C".

I do no know if you stop a regular "full backup" in this way if it'll throw things off.

Thanks,

Jeff
