I am sorry for having taken far much too long to go on trying and solve this issue, so now it is mostly a fresh start, even because I reinstalled after uninstalling with "Your Uninstaller". As It didn't erase everything on the user profile, I cleared the remaining by hand. I also updated the app with the latest 218.
Now, it seems to be OK except for stopping and resuming very large uploads when we have to shut down the computer to resume on the following or another day.
I followed your earkier instructions as above:

If you want to close the application and the computer (as in your case), you need to press the Stop button. That will process the current file and stop the backup right after that. The files already backed up will not be backed up again next time you run the backup.
This was the first time I had the opportunity to try it out after my last post and e-mail, but there is a problem with the procedure. I tried with a set of small text files, mostly Winword (*.doc and *.docx), adding to 17.2MB, which became about over 5.3MB after zipped, and set the maximum size to split at 1MB. While uploading the backup, I could see the 1MB files being uploaded to the server one by one with Filezilla.
After pressing the Stop button (several trials between 10% to 80% of any uploading file), on the right side of the uploading percentage counter and graphic, on the Status bar, the path of the file being uploaded is replaced with the indication "Stopping backup", a time counter, and "Please wait....." When the current file finishes to be uploaded the text on the Status bar is replaced with the following: "Update catalogue", and the time counter.
I expected it would happen as you described on my quotation, but that was only until then, because as soon as the catalogue was written, I suppose, the upload resumed to the next and following files until completely finished, just as if the Stop button had not been pressed. The only difference was the button became grey and remained like that for good.
Can you please tell me how can I overcome this issue? I know you need and have patience, But I am very persistent because Backup4all works very smoothly with FTP, and has all the options I need except one, which is no 7Zip compression, no other choice than the not good Zip.
