How I configure backp to delete contents of the disc before?

Veeam Logoby jautor » Thu Sep 01, 2016 3:33 pm

I have a incremental backup task on an external USB disk that fails cause it runs out of space... How can I configure it to delete the contents of the disc before to do the job?

Thank you!!

Basically you want to wipe it our completely prior to making any new backup? I assume you want to perform new full backup each time, right? Thanks.

Then, you will need to write a simple script that will remove everything it will find in a given directory and set the script as a pre-job activity. Also, enable "rotated drive" option in the settings of the repository, so that, jobs don't fail with missing full backup error. Thanks.
