Stop, Restart, or Terminate a Backup¶
On this page
When you stop backups for a replica set or sharded cluster Ops Manager stops taking new snapshots but retains existing snapshots until their listed expiration date.
If you later restart backups for replica set or cluster, Ops Manager might perform an initial sync, depending on how much time has elapsed.
If you terminate a backup, Ops Manager immediately deletes all the backup’s snapshots.
