Stopping Backup Job

In this article

    You can stop the running backup job before the job session completes, for example, if the backup process is about to take long, and you do not want the job to produce workload on the production environment during business hours.

    When you stop a backup job, the job session will finish immediately. Veeam Agent will not produce a new restore point during the session, and the session will finish with the Failed status.

    To stop a backup job:

    1. In the upper-right corner of the menu bar, click the Veeam Agent icon.
    2. Select Stop Backup Job.

    If two or more backup jobs are configured, select Jobs > Stop Backup Job "<Name>", where <Name> is a backup job name.

    Veeam Agent will immediately stop the backup job.

    Alternatively, you can stop the backup job with the command line interface.
