You can easily stop a backup that is in progress.
To stop a backup in progress
Open the Launchpad.
Note If asked, log on to the Launchpad with your user name and password.
In the Backup Properties dialog box, in the Backup status section, the Start backup button changes to Stop backup when the backup is in progress. Click Stop Backup, and then click Yes. The backup will continue to run until you click Yes.
When you stop a backup in progress, the status changes to Backup was cancelled with the date and time that the backup started. If, instead, you see a status of Successful, Incomplete, or Failed, the last backup has already finished.
Click OK to close the Backup Properties dialog box.
