Removing RDS Snapshots

In this article

    Veeam Backup for AWS applies the configured retention policy settings to automatically remove cloud-native snapshots and snapshot replicas created by backup policies. If necessary, you can also remove the backed-up data manually.

    Note

    In Veeam Backup for AWS, you can remove only snapshots created by the Veeam backup service. To delete AWS Snapshots (DB instance snapshots created in AWS), use Amazon Management Console.

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

    1. Navigate to Protected Data > RDS.
    2. Select RDS resources whose data you want to remove.
    3. Click Remove and select either of the following options:
    • All — to remove all cloud-native snapshots and snapshot replicas created for the selected RDS resources both by backup policies and manually.
    • Manual Snapshots — to remove cloud-native snapshots created for the selected RDS resources manually.
    • Local Snapshots — to remove cloud-native snapshots created for the selected RDS resources by backup policies.

    If you want to remove only specific cloud-native snapshots, follow the instructions provided in section Removing RDS Snapshots Created Manually.

    • Replicas —  to remove snapshot replicas created for the selected RDS resources by backup policies.
