How to cancel file restore from backup

NethServer Version: 7.5.1804
Module: RestoreData
I am trying to restore some files from backup, and started the restore from GUI, but it is taking to long. Now I would like to cancel it and start a more selective restore from CLI. Yet I can’t seems to find how to cancel the current restore operation, and the webgui has become utterly unresponsive.
Is there a CLI command to cancel the running restore operation? Thank you :slight_smile:

What I’d do, don’t know if it’s really the right/official way:
Restore-data is a python2 process.
With top you can see the consuming backup process on top. Get the PID of this python2 process and execute kill PID.

killall python2 works too but I don’t know if you’d kill other important processes with that…

Yes, I did try to kill the active python2 process but it re-spawned. So eventually I had to restart the server for there was not enough space to restore everything.
Thanks anyway :innocent:
