windows server backup – cancel a running job

i had a bit of a trouble finding a way to stop a running windows server backup.

the internet told me to click on “show details”  or “modify scheduled backup settings” in the mmc snap-in .. but all i got was an error that i could not click on the option as a backup was running or i got just details from the last completed backup …

turned out you can do this via this command:

wbadmin stop job

you are prompted whether you really want to stop the job …

@MS: would a button “stop current backup” have been too much of an effort?! or am i blind and don’t see the button / gui-way to solve this task?
