Removing Backups and Snapshots

In this article

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


    Do not delete separate backup files from Microsoft Azure storage accounts manually. If some files in the backup chain are missing, you will not be able to roll back to the necessary state.

    To remove snapshots and backups created by a backup policy, do the following:

    1. Navigate to Protected Data.
    2. Select check boxes next to the necessary Azure VMs.
    3. Click Remove and choose whether you want to remove snapshots, backups or both.
