How to force a backup running task to stop?

Hi,

today I have one backup task that runs crazy, It should have been stopped during the night (it have only 3 hours of backup window), I press cancel but I only see Canceling execution... for hours. (see attached picture)

Is there any way to really finish this backup without to restart vdr machine?

Thanks

ok, I got it but...

[root@vdr ~]# service datarecovery stop
Stopping VMware Data Recovery services:
   VMware Data Recovery Watchdog                           [  OK  ]
   VMware Data Recovery
      Waiting for VMware Data Recovery to stop... (1 of 15)
      Waiting for VMware Data Recovery to stop... (2 of 15)

      ...

what's that??  I'll wait but I don't know what's going wrong.
