Allow users to cancel device backups

License editions: To understand the applicable license editions, see Plans & Pricing.


As an administrator, you can allow users to cancel an ongoing Druva inSync backup. A user might decide to cancel a backup to conserve network bandwidth or CPU usage. 

Note: You can allow users to cancel an ongoing backup through profiles. You cannot do this on an individual user level.

 This option is applicable to inSync with version 7.0.0 and later


To allow users to cancel backups:

  1. On the inSync Management Console menu bar, click Profiles.
  2. Click the link of the profile for which you want to allow users to pause device backups.
  3. On the  Devices tab, click User Settings > Edit. The Edit Device Backup Configuration window appears.
  4. Select the cancel backup check box.
  5. Click Save.
