Stop backup in progress

I have a backup configured against a remote vpn.
The process is very slow (10 days)
We are changing to a local device but when launching the backup it indicates that there is another previous one in process.

Is it possible to stop the current copy without causing problems?

What is the correct way to do it?

Maybe this helps

I think you can retrieve the PID of the backup with “top” command (you’ll see “duplicity” process) and then kill it with this command: kill -SIGTERM pidnumber

Hi, Thanks for sharing this. I didn’t know you can actually retrieve the PID of the backup with this “top” command.
