Thanks for the explanation.

I did exclude proftpd successfully.

Now the line for proftpd is gone and the backup stops at the second last service (redisserver in my case).

Shall I exclude all other services as well?

Well you could try to exclude all services but honestly I don't think it will bring anything. Looks like your backup is going to fail somewhere between stopping the services and checking the space. Maybe you can try to change backup location? I guess it's a mounted HDD currently. If you would have sufficient space on your SD card, you could select this as backup location?

I picked the SD card as location with the same result as before. :(

It all started going wrong with the update to 6.29.2 fwiw.

Any other Idea?

hmm quite strange. For me it was working on 6.29.2 as well as on 6.30 now.

@MichaIng would have an idea where it could stuck

Looking forward to hear some thoughts.

At minimum it would be helpful to know where to look for logs to (try to) troubleshoot in the meantime.

Many thanks.

I thought i was encountering the same issue in 6.31, was about to post here. Dietpi backup would hang on stopping services.

I checked htop for services, tried running again, no luck. Then it just suddenly started backing up. Probably took around 15 minutes or so hanging around stopping services.

probably it took quite some time to scan all files and directories.

Yes, perhaps, but perhaps Totila might fix his own issue if he simply left the backup run for a while?
