Any way to kill a Syncovery job when network share fails?

Post by apd123 »

I often need to backup over a VPN to a remote network share. Sometimes the VPN fails mid-session.

When it happens, I need to cancel the Syncovery job. If I click cancel, it then says it is waiting for operations to complete before copying, As the share is down, they never complete. The only way to stop it is to force close Syncovery but that then makes the mac unstable: it will never shut down properly after that and must be forced to shut down, which is a real pain and will eventually damage the file system.

Is there a way of cancelling a job, forcing it to end the job without waiting for existing jobs to complete?

Hello,
currently, the only way is to use Force-Close. This will be improved in version 9. The Mac version should be finished in around two months.

Thanks very much. If we could have a force cancel or the force close could not leave the Mac unstable, that would be great. Otherwise, Syncovery (and Superflexible before it) are fabulous - thanks for all your hard work.
