Removing Backups from External Repository

If you want to remove backups from external repositories, you can use the Delete from disk operation.

Consider the following:

  • Data will be removed from the Veeam Backup & Replication console, configuration database and associated object storage repository.
  • Data cannot be removed if the maintenance job is in progress.
  • Data cannot be removed if at least one restore session of external repository data is in progress.
  • Ownership is not required to remove data from external repositories.

To remove backups from an external repository, do the following:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, expand the Backups node and click External Repository.
  3. In the working area, select a backup or a separate instance or VM in the backup and click Remove from > Disk on the ribbon.

Alternatively, you can right-click a backup or an instance and select Delete from disk.
