Removing Backup Repositories

In this article

    Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 allows you to remove backup repositories from the backup infrastructure if you no longer need them.

    Consider the following:

    • When removing a backup repository, backup files that reside in such a repository will not be removed.
    • The last remaining backup repository cannot be removed.
    • When removing an extended backup repository that was synchronized, the backup data located in associated object storage becomes unavailable. For more information about repositories synchronization, see Synchronizing Repositories.
    • You cannot remove a backup repository that is in use by backup jobs

    To remove such a repository, remove (or re-map) all backup jobs that are mapped to this repository and then remove a repository. For more information on how to remove a backup job, see Removing Backup Job.

    To remove a backup repository, do the following:

    1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
    2. In the inventory pane, select the Backup Repositories node.
    3. In the preview pane, select a backup repository.
    4. On the Backup Repository tab, click Remove Repository on the ribbon.

    Alternatively, in the preview pane, right-click a backup repository and select Remove.
