Hello!

How can I make sure that the hard disk is deleted before the backup job starts?

Hi Ronny,

I'm not sure I am following. What do you actually want to achieve?

Mike,

Question/answer above was about kb1154
HKLM\Software\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication
ForceDeleteBackupFiles (DWORD)

Set to 3 to make the job delete the entire contents of the backup job’s folder only.
Set to 5 to make the job delete the entire contents of the root backup repository folder, potentially deleting any files belonging to other jobs. Note that if the backup repository points at the volumes root folder, the entire volume's contents are erased.
