Is there a way to gracefully stop a currently running cPanel backup session?

Gracefully = let the individual account that's in the process of being backed up finish properly, but do not back up any further accounts originally queued for this session.

Hello :)

It's a better idea to terminate the backup process and then remove the temporary backup archive data for the account so that it's generated successfully on the next backup attempt. Otherwise, you risk corrupted restore data if you kill the parent process before the backup completes.

Thank you.
