Deleting Backup from Disk

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.
