Deleting Backups

Backup files created with Veeam Agent are removed automatically according to the retention job settings. You can also remove backups from the target location and/or Veeam Agent configuration database manually if necessary.

Removing Backup from Configuration

To remove a backup from the Veeam Agent configuration database, use the following command:

veeamconfig backup delete --id <backup_id>

where:

<backup_id> — ID of the backup that you want to delete.

Veeam Agent for Mac will remove records about the deleted backup from the Veeam Agent database. Backup files themselves (VBK, VIB, VBM) remain in the backup repository. You can import the removed backup later to Veeam Agent for Mac and perform restore operations with the imported backup.

Deleting Backup Files

To delete backup files from the target location and Veeam Agent database, use the following command:

veeamconfig backup delete --id <backup_id> --purge

where:

<backup_id> — ID of the backup that you want to delete.

Veeam Agent for Mac will remove records about the deleted backup from the Veeam Agent database and, additionally, delete backup files themselves from the destination storage. 

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
