How Do I Stop a Hung or Stuck SkySync Service?

Sometimes the administrator needs to kill a service that is stuck stopping. To avoid rebooting the server, perform the following steps: 

 1. Determine the Process ID (PID) of the SkySync Service
  • Open a command prompt as Administrator
  • Type the following:  sc queryex skysyncservice
  • Make note of the PID

 2. Kill the PID

  • From the same command prompt: taskkill /f /pid [PID from Step 1]


NOTE:  The PID used in this example will NOT be the PID on your server.


3. Start the SkySync Service

  • From Services.msc, right click SkySync Service and select Start
