Ability to cancel backup

Hello,

We use the tool in a corporate environment as replacement for the discontinued Microsoft PFBackup. I have received quite positive feedback from our users and like to thank you for sharing this tool with us.

One often requested point was whether to make available the buttons [Save Backup] and [Cancel], as it has been in the PFBackup. Sometimes a user would like to interrupt the backup for any reason and rerun the backup later or next time. May I ask for the implementation as a new feature request? In addition I have the idea to display the countdown (if enabled) in the [Save Backup] button instead in the main window (see screenshot).

Thanks in advance and best regards,
Sebastian

Hello,

GUI for setting countdown will be included in the oncoming version.

I will think about the cancel-button, maybe people find the button easier than the window-close button.

The countdown messages should also work when using the tool via console.
Messages are currently treated the same way... in GUI mode and console mode.
The messaging system would have to be reorganised, thus I tend to keep the current countdown method.

Kind regards,
