You can remove S3 repositories from the backup infrastructure. When you remove an S3 repository, Veeam Backup for AWS unassigns the repository role from the folder in an Amazon S3 bucket and this folder is no longer used as an S3 repository.
Veeam Backup for AWS does not remove backup files stored in the S3 repository. You can reconnect the removed S3 repository at any time and perform disaster recovery operations with backups from this repository. To remove backups from S3 repositories, follow the steps described in the Removing Backups section.
You cannot remove an S3 repository that is used by any backup policy. To remove such S3 repository, you must first delete a reference to this S3 repository in backup policy settings.
To remove S3 repositories:
- At the top right corner of the Veeam Backup for AWS window, click Configuration.
- In the configuration menu on the left, click Repositories.
- Select check boxes next to S3 repositories that you want to remove.
You can use the search field to find the S3 repository by name.
- At the top of the repositories list, click Remove.
