Shutdown in progress

Shutdown in progress on ubuntu has taken over 1 hour and still open. Due to the warning I am hesitant to force quit the app. (v0.9.3) Is force quitting safe? Prior to quiting the app I had canceled two sales and noticed that the funds never updated on my available balance. I quit the app to see if it was just a gui issue and upon re-oopening the funds that were originally up for sale would be displayed in my balance.

Please advise.

Ok app finally just crashed and upon reopening the funds appeared. false alarm i guess

You can look at the log file in ~/.local/share/Bisq/ to find errors during that crash that could better explain the issue that occurred here.

Force quitting may absolutely result in corrupting data, so better avoid it if you can.

My bisq is also currently stuck on shutting down and I am afraid to force close. What should I do?
Edit: i am on windows 10.

@merenkov what did you do? You just waited? How long?

if you cannot avoid force quitting,
a simple safety measure would be to make a copy of the Bisq data directory before.

Bisq data dir locations:

  • Mac OSX: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Bisq
  • Linux: /home/username/.local/share/Bisq
  • Windows 7,8,10: C:\Documents and Settings\username\AppData\Roaming\Bisq
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Bisq

Yeah, I would just follow Homrad’s advice and close it anyway.
