    I have installed the plugin and run a backup and the site become irresponsive and get the 503 error about three hours ago.
    I can see in dropbox that the backup is on process, but my website is down.
    I have deleted the folder of the plugin, but it doesn't stop the backup and the site is still down.

    Any idea how to stop it so I can recover my site?

    OK, solved: I quit permision to the plugin in Dropbox and the website was up again.
    Be careful when using this plugin.

    There is an intermittent issue with stopping at the moment that has been resolved in 1.4.

    Your site should not become unresponsive during the backup. What host are you using?

    redcoruna.com. The site was completely overloaded, and it was caused by the plugin, because it started when I begun the backup and recovered when quit permission in Dropbox.
