If the option is grayed out then you will have to wait for the task to fail or complete. It may also be that the copy has not actually started yet and once you get a progress bar the copy should allow the cancelation of the task.
I hope this is helpful and please leave points if it is.
it's either not started and waiting for some other process to finish. once it is started with 1% you could stop it. the other way would be stopping vcenter services to halt all the pending jobs/processes.
Thanks for your replies
Yes I would have thought that was the case but I currently have a copy in progress which is at 39% but the option to cancel is not available. The task display does not show any information about what is being copied. I only see under the name column, 'Copy file'
