Removing Snapshots

In this article

    Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure applies the configured retention policy settings to automatically remove cloud-native snapshots 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 > Azure Files.
    2. Select Azure file shares whose data you want to remove.
    3. Click Remove and select either of the following options:
    • All — to remove all cloud-native snapshots created for the selected Azure file shares both by backup policies and manually.
    • Policy Snapshots — to remove all cloud-native snapshots created for the selected Azure file shares by backup policies.
    • Manual Snapshots — to remove all cloud-native snapshots created for the selected Azure file shares manually.
