Managing Backed-Up Data

In this article

    You can manage backed-up data in the following ways.

    Removing Image-Level Backups from Cloud Storage Backup Repositories

    You can remove image-level backups and snapshots from Cloud Storage backup repositories only using the Veeam Backup for GCP appliance Web UI. For more information on how to delete snapshots and backups, see the following sections in the Veeam Backup for GCP User Guide:

    Decrypting Image-Level Backups

    If you specify decryption passwords for Cloud Storage backup repositories when adding a Veeam Backup for GCP appliance, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically decrypts backup files stored in these repositories. If you do not specify decryption passwords, backup files remain encrypted.

    To decrypt backup files:

    1. Open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, navigate to Backups > External Repository (Encrypted).
    3. In the working area, select a backup policy whose image-level backups you want to decrypt or select an individual backup. Then click Specify Password on the ribbon, or right-click one of the selected backups, and select Specify password.
    4. In the Password field, enter a password.

    In the Hint field, you can see a hint for the password used to encrypt the backup files. Use this hint to recall the password.

    Alternatively, you can specify a decryption password at the Bucket step of the Edit External Repository wizard. For more information on how to open the wizard, see the Editing Settings of External Repository section in the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.
