I am using SharePoint 2010 on Windows server 2008 R2.

I have started a Site collection restore process. Initially, it gave me an Error saying

The directory C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\80 is already being used by another IIS Web Sit

then it stopped restore process in the middle.Even tried restarting Server but no luck(Running from past 24 Hours, never ends)

When I try to restore with different directory it says there is already a restore process running.


How do I terminate on going restore job on SP2010.

You can do it from Central Administration.

  • Go to Central admin > Monitoring > Review Timer Job Status
  • Then click on Running Timer Job
  • Now please see if Restore Job is running, Click and Stop it.
  • I dont find any Jobs running there onedrive.live.com/… ? Apr 28, 2016 at 14:32
  • on the same page click on Job definition and then try o find one-time timer job which contains word restore.

  • There is no job as Restore/Backup onedrive.live.com/… Apr 28, 2016 at 14:47
  • if you filter the jobs on that page by clicking on the Schedule Type. and then see if there is any one time timer job?
