Is it safe to stop an ongoing backup?


I was running an initial huge backup and playing a video game at the same time. My game was lagging so I pressed the stop button in the Web GUI. Now I’m wondering if theres a chance that I messed up my backup?

What is the worst that can happen when I press the stop button? (for inital and subsequent backups).


Nothing bad at all. An initial backup will take longer to redo but it won’t have to reupload. The only thing you’re left with is maybe a small amount of unreferenced chunks that can eventually be pruned with the -exhaustive option. Duplicacy is designed to handle resuming.
