Removing Veeam Agent Backups

You can remove Veeam Agent backups from Veeam Backup & Replication or permanently delete Veeam Agent backups from the backup repository.

Removing from Configuration

When you remove a Veeam Agent backup from configuration, Veeam Backup & Replication deletes all records about the backup from its database and console. The actual backup files remain on the backup repository. You can import the backup to the Veeam Backup & Replication at any time later and restore data from it. To learn more, see Importing Veeam Agent Backups.

To remove a Veeam Agent backup from configuration:

  1. In Veeam Backup & Replication, open the Backup & Replication view.
  2. In the inventory pane, click Disk under the Backups node.
  3. In the working area, expand the Agents node, select the necessary backup and click Remove from > Configuration on the ribbon or right-click the backup and select Remove from configuration.

Removing Veeam Agent Backups Important!

You should not remove a Veeam Agent backup from configuration if Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows is set up to use the backup cache and the backup cache contains one or several restore points that are not uploaded to the target location yet. If you remove such backup and then import it in the Veeam Backup & Replication console, the backup will receive the new ID in the configuration database. As a result, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows will become unable to upload restore points from the backup cache to the target location and to create new restore points in the backup cache. To continue creating backups in the Veeam backup repository, you will need to delete restore points from the backup cache and run the backup job to create a new restore point in the backup repository.
