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 remove specific child backups — backups related to individual computers in the backup.


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.

To remove an application backup from the backup repository:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, click Backups.
  3. 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.
