Hard stop windows backup

How to hard stop windows backup

There are times when windows backup has failed or is hung and the windows backup interface does not have a cancel backup or stop backup anywhere..  That is ok as luckily they gave us a command line option..

 

Open cmd with elevated privileges (right click it and click run as administrator), then enter the command below and wait, be patient as it can take a long time..( I did one recently and I had to wait 34 mins)

wbadmin stop job
