when I use --increment as below example hashcat found the password at 8 digits but it won't stop but continue to try until 10 digits,
my question how to tell hashcat to stop when it found the password

hashcat.exe -m 2500 -a 3 .hash  --increment --increment-min 8 --increment-max 10 ?d?d?d?d?d?d?d?d?dd
Your hash file must contain more than one hash, also note you're probably using an old version of hashcat AND a deprecated hashtype. If you want to confirm you can check the amount digest you have listed when you start your attack.
