How can I clear my queue?

To remove unwanted files and other transactions from the queue, you can tell SpiderOak to reset the queue from the command line by doing the following:

Quit SpiderOak. Don't just minimize the application, shut it down completely, and be sure that all SpiderOak processes have closed correctly. Open a terminal or command prompt window. At the prompt, enter the appropriate command, and execute it by pressing enter:

For Windows:

"C:\Program Files\SpiderOak\SpiderOak.exe" --destroy-shelved-x --verbose

For Mac:

/Applications/SpiderOak.app/Contents/MacOS/SpiderOak --destroy-shelved-x --verbose

For Linux:

SpiderOak --destroy-shelved-x --verbose

Please allow several minutes for this command to run: it does not always generate text immediately. Once this has finished running, then give the command:

For Windows:

"C:\Program Files\SpiderOak\SpiderOak.exe" --repair --verbose

For Mac:

/Applications/SpiderOak.app/Contents/MacOS/SpiderOak --repair --verbose

For Linux:

SpiderOak --repair --verbose

Again, allow several minutes for this command to finish: it does not always generate text immediately. Now open SpiderOak: your queue should be cleared. Recall, however, that if these files are selected for backup in the Back Up tab, then they will be added to the queue again.
