Deleting from Disk

When you delete replicas from disks, Veeam Backup & Replication removes the replicas not only from the Veeam Backup & Replication console and configuration database, but also from host storage.


Consider the following:

  • You can delete records only about replicas that are in the Ready state.
  • Do not delete replica files from the destination storage manually, use the Delete from disk option instead. If you delete replica files manually, subsequent replication sessions will fail.
  • Unlike the Remove from configuration operation, the Delete from disk operation does not remove the processed workload from the initial replication job.

To delete replica files from disks:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, click the Replicas node.
  3. In the working area, select the necessary replica and click Remove from > Disk on the ribbon. As an alternative, right-click the replica and select Delete from disk.
