Hy,

My HDD is full and I want to make free space. I show that I have 3 or 4 restore points in all backup.

How can i delete some restore points.

Best regards

Emmanuel

Hello Emmanuel,

You can reduce the retention policy value at advanced settings of your job configuration, that will automatically remove the oldest restore points for your backups.

Please be aware that retention policy check is performed at the end of the job, so if you're not able to run the job rigth now due to lack of free space, you may delete just the oldest VRB file (the last available restore point) manually at the destination storage and re-run the job, this restore point will also be deleted from the Veeam SQL configuration DB automatically with retention policy as soon as your job finishes successfully.

Thank you!

Can I delete old .vib and .vbk files if I am sure I don't need them?

Reduce the number of restore points kept by the given job and let retention policy do it work. Thanks.

Marius, deleting restore points manually is highly not recommended, as you might end up with orphaned restore point entries in the SQL configuration database.
