Deleting Backup from Disk

In this article

    If you want to delete records about backups from the Veeam Backup & Replication console and configuration database and, additionally, delete backup files from the backup repository, you can use the Delete from disk operation.

    Deleting Backup from Disk NOTE

    You can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to remove backups created by Veeam Agent backup jobs on the Veeam backup repository. Backups created on a local drive of a protected computer or in a network shared folder are not displayed in the Veeam Backup & Replication console.

    You can remove an entire backup related to a Veeam Agent backup job or remove specific child backups — backups related to individual computers in the backup.

    To remove a Veeam Agent backup from the backup repository:

    1. Open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, click Backups.
    3. In the working area select and remove the necessary backup:
    • To remove the entire backup related to the Veeam Agent backup job or policy, select the backup and click Remove from > Disk on the ribbon or right-click the backup and select Delete from disk.
    • To remove a backup of a specific computer in the Veeam Agent backup job or policy, expand the parent backup, select the necessary computer and click Remove from > Disk on the ribbon or right-click the computer and select Delete from disk.
