Note: Sometimes stopping a translation causes FME to create temporary files that can take up unnecessary disk space. It’s a good idea to select Tools > Purge Temporary Files (or press Alt + C) after you stop a translation.
What Happens After You Stop a Translation?
When you stop a translation, the output file is left incomplete and is not usable. If you run the file again, the entire translation will restart, overwriting any partial results from a previously aborted translation.
