Removing Backup Repositories

Veeam Backup for Microsoft 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, do one of the following:
  • Select a backup repository and on the Backup Repository tab, click Remove Repository on the ribbon.
  • Right-click a backup repository and select Remove.
