I am backing up a project. The blue status bar is near the end. However the backup keeps proceeding indefinitely and the status bar seems to be frozen. 

This will happen only if the backup path is the same as the current project path. The reason being that as it progresses the backup program looks for files in the project directory that it has yet to back up. If the backup is created in the project directory it will see this as a file that it has to backup. As it is continually writing to the backup file it continues to think that it has new information to backup. This will make the backup process continue till there is no more space on the hard drive.

Do not choose the current project path as a backup path.
