Cancel Metadata Backup?

Ignorantly I queued all my books for metadata backup - without it being necessary - all my books have correct opf files and the library checks out ok. Unfortunately this process is moving at a glacial pace and after 5% of the catalog are done I expect the process to take about 8 full days. Is there any way to stop this process?

Thx

Kovid, well that's what I did first. Whenever I re-open the Metadata Backup Status, it shows the process is still going merrily on, at about a book every 3 seconds. This wouldn't be a major issue if the library wasn't sitting in a Dropbox folder (so I can use the Calibre Companion app from my iPad).

BTW, thank you for your great work on Calibre, a piece of really useful and well designed software.

The Job Spy plugin has an option to clear the metadata (OPF) backup queue.
