You can permanently remove a backup policy from Veeam Backup for AWS. When you remove a backup policy, cloud-native snapshots, and snapshot replicas or image-level backups created by this backup policy remain intact in AWS. Such snapshots, replicas and backups are not deleted from the configuration database — you can find them in the Protected Data view. For details, see Viewing Backed-Up EC2 Instances.
To remove backup policies:
- In the main menu on the left, click Policies.
- Select check boxes next to backup policies that you want to remove.
You can use the search field to find the necessary backup policy by name or use filters to limit the list of displayed backup policies.
- At the top of the backup policies list, click Remove.
