Stopping a running backup causes a popup alert. This is good. The message could be better-written though:

Hi Mike,

Good catch. Probably rather a tired PM then the programmer ;-)
What version are you using?

I will pass it to the development teams after that

Thanks!
Mike

It's 9.5, and this error only comes up after stopping the job from the Running (Last 24 hours) selection. The "Gracefully, Immediately, Cancel" dialogue happens when trying to stop from within the Jobs selection.

Here's where to find the goofy error:

Can you suggest a better wording? Because to me, except that obvious typo ("Backup's files" should be "Backup files") it does not seem too bad?

Change the first sentence from:
"Backup's files for this job will be left in the inconsistent state."

to:
"Backup files for this job will be left in an inconsistent state."

You want to use the indefinite article here - the inconsistent state wasn't already mentioned and isn't obviously implied (which is when you'd use "the"). Articles are a hassle sometimes :)

Thanks Mike,

And as you can see Anton is reading it also ;-)

Cheers
