Removing VPC Configuration Backups

In this article

    Veeam Backup for AWS applies the configured retention policy settings to automatically remove VPC configuration backups created by the VPC Configuration Backup policy. If necessary, you can also remove the backed-up data manually.

    Important

    If you remove a configuration record for an AWS Region, all VPC configuration backups for the selected AWS Region will be removed.

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

    1. Navigate to Protected Data > VPC.
    2. Select the configuration record for which you want to remove the backed-up data.
    3. Click Remove and select either of the following options:
    • Remove — to remove all VPC configuration backups for the selected configuration record from the Veeam Backup for AWS database.

    Note

    If you remove Amazon VPC configuration backups from the Veeam Backup for AWS database but leave their additional copies in any S3 repository, these backups will be added back to the Veeam Backup for AWS database when the Veeam backup service restarts or Veeam Backup for AWS rescans the S3 repository.

    • Remove Additional Copies — to remove all VPC configuration backups for the selected configuration record from the S3 repository, specified in the target settings of the VPC Configuration Backup policy.
