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.
You can use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to remove backups created by application policies 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 an application policy or remove specific child backups — backups related to individual computers in the backup.
To remove an application backup from the backup repository:
- Open the Home view.
- In the inventory pane, click Backups.
- In the working area, select the backup and click Delete from > Disk on the ribbon or right-click the backup and select Delete from disk.
