Deleting all OneDrive backups

Post by PaulNSW »

Will this PS script delete all OneDrive backups within the repository, leaving the rest in-tact? I changed settings from another post in the forum, but just want to double-check.

Code: Select all

$repo = Get-VBORepository -Name "backup_repo_name"
$usersList = Get-VBOEntityData -Type User -Repository $repo

foreach ($user in $usersList) {
 Remove-VBOEntityData -Repository $repo -User $user -OneDrive -Confirm:$false
}

This will delete all the OneDrive data.

If u remove "-Confirm:$false", you will have to confirm before deletion (if you want to play safe).

The only data taht is deleted is from within the personal OneDrive, is this correct?

With the above script, you will delete all backed-up OneDrive accounts from your repository; user mailboxes and personal sites (if any) will remain untouched in the backup.

Thanks Polina!

Is there a way to check how much has been saved after the processing or will veeam365 just reuse the "white space"?

If you're using local volumes and JET-based repositories, backup databases will not shrink but the free space will be reused on the next runs.
