Removing Backup from Configuration

If you want to remove records about Veeam Plug-in backups from the Veeam Backup & Replication console and configuration database, you can use the Remove from configuration operation. When you remove a Veeam Plug-in backup from configuration, the actual backup files remain on the backup repository. You can import the backup to the Veeam Backup & Replication at any time later and restore data from it.

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 backup policies in 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 console.

To remove a Veeam Plug-in backup from configuration:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, click Backups.
  3. To remove a backup of a specific computer in the application backup policy, expand the parent backup, select the necessary computer, press and hold the [CTRL] key, right-click the backup and select Remove from configuration.
