Removing Backups

In this article

    Veeam Backup for AWS applies the configured retention policy settings to automatically remove EFS file system backups and backup copies created by backup policies. If necessary, you can also remove the backed-up data manually.

    To remove backed-up data manually, do the following:

    1. Navigate to Protected Data > EFS.
    2. Select EFS file systems whose data you want to remove.
    3. Click Remove and select either of the following options:
    • Backups — to remove EFS backups created for the selected file systems by backup policies.
    • Backup Copies —  to remove backup copies created for the selected file systems by backup policies.
    • Manual Backups — to remove EFS backups created for the selected file systems manually.

    If you want to remove only specific manual backup, follow the instructions provided in section Removing Backups Created Manually.

    • All — to remove all backups and backup copies created for the selected file systems both by backup policies and manually.
