Catalog Management? Delete old entries

Post by samuraizero » Dec 06, 2016 10:03 pm

Hey All

We used to write our backups to tape, and have since stopped. Deleting the tapes from catalog removes all the tape backups from the catalog. Awesome!

However, I have a number of test jobs and other garbage that have long since been deleted from disk and from the Veeam jobs, that hang out in my catalog. How can I remove these items?

Please check out the ability to remove missing restore points from Veeam B&R.

Hi Foggy

Thanks, this is along the lines of what I'm after.
However, these jobs do not exist on disk anymore - so I cant follow these steps.

Can I do anything via powershell to clear these out?

You can use the Forget option — in this case records about missing restore points will be removed from the configuration database (exactly what you're looking for).

Hey Foggy, sorry I may be missing something here.

3.In the working area, select the backup and click Properties on the ribbon or right-click the backup and select Properties.



I don't have these jobs in my backup list under 'disk' anymore or under Jobs, but they still appear as potential restore points. How can I delete these orphaned entries?

Do you mean you see them in the Backups Browser window when performing restore? Please contact technical support to cleanup the database then.
