'Stop Backup' doesn't work

I’m trying to restore something from my backup, but as soon as I open the UI, the progress indicator says “Starting Backup.” So the database is locked, and I can’t do anything. I’ve tried ‘Stop after upload’ and ‘stop now,’ but neither one does a thing.

How do I stop the backup so I can restore something?

running Duplicati - on Linux Mint 17.1:

Sounds like maybe we’re experiencing similar issues, actually.

Is there any support here??

Hello… your original post may have been missed somehow. I know there are other discussions about how this feature is currently broken. Hopefully someone is working on it!

A PR is in for ‘Stop after current upload’ which allows the backup to cleanly stop.
