ASA 5505 Backup Operation Stuck at 99%

I have an ASA 5505 box that I'm trying to upgrade but before doing so I tried backing up the config.

It's been stuck at 99% all night and now I can't seem to kill the process to try again.

 What is the best way to safely kill the backup operation?

Can you do a hard reset of the box?  Yes, you will lose your configuration.

Thanks John.

Actually. I realized that performing a backup configuration is an ASDM operation. Simply closing out of ASDM and restarting it I was able to complete the task.
