Editing and Deleting Files

You can edit files and delete them in the Files view of Veeam Backup & Replication. For example, you may want to edit a configuration file of the VM (VMX) or need to delete from the storage files of unused VMs.

To edit a file:

  1. Open the Files view.
  2. In the inventory pane, expand the file tree of the necessary server or host.
  3. In the working area, select the file and click Edit on the ribbon or right-click the folder and select Edit.
  4. Veeam Backup & Replication will open the selected file in the editor. Edit the file as required and click Save on the file editor toolbar or press [CTRL+S].

To delete a file:

  1. Open the Files view.
  2. In the inventory pane, expand the file tree of the necessary server or host.
  3. In the working area, select the file and click Delete on the ribbon or right-click the folder and select Delete.

Editing and Deleting Files Note:

To delete a folder on VSAN, you must remove a real folder, not a symbolic link to this folder. The real folder is named with GUID, for example, c07a2953-8096-5b20-a11a-002590c5857c, while the symbolic link contains the folder name, for example, srv02_vm. If you delete the folder symbolic link, the delete operation will fail, and the folder will not be removed.
