Deleting Backups

In this article

    Integration with Veeam Backup Repositories for Kasten K10 allows you to permanently delete backups exported by K10 policies or manually from the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure in one of the following ways:  

    Removing from Configuration

    If you want to remove records about backups from the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure and configuration database, you can use the Remove from configuration operation. When you remove a backup from the configuration, the backup files (VBK and VBM) remain in the Veeam backup repository. You can import the backup later and restore application data and folders from it.

    To remove a backup from the configuration:

    1. Open the Home view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select Backups.
    3. In the working area, select the backup and click Remove from > Configuration on the ribbon. Alternatively, right-click the backup and select Remove from configuration.

    Deleting Backups from Disk

    If you want to remove records about backups from both the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure and configuration database, you can use Delete from disk operation. When you delete backup files from a disk, Veeam Backup & Replication deletes the whole chain from the Veeam backup repository. Thus, on the next run of the K10 policy, Integration with Veeam Backup Repositories for Kasten K10 will create full backups for applications included added to the job.

    Important

    Do not delete backup files from the Veeam backup repository manually. If you delete backup files manually, subsequent backup or replication job sessions will fail.

    This option allows you to delete the following type of data:
