sorry for the miniscule info...i just need a quick yes or no answer.

We started a full db export using exp, and we need to kill it. Is it "safe" to do so? Killing it won't affect the database in any way, right?

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/exp system/xxxxxx BUFFER=140000 FULL=Y FILE=/export/<sid>.exp VOLSIZE=2000M GRANT

Yes. you can always kill the job in OS.
Meanwhile, I would not use compress=Y.
