SureBackup is leaving stuff behind

Post by hyvokar » Mar 09, 2018 7:55 am

Hi!

Doing some spring cleaning on my cluster, and one of the datastores (where sure backup is set to run) had a folder "SureBackup".
It contains two folders:

3c399c4c-d5f4-4034-a289-7914c52dXXXX
b222043c-2e5f-4dce-9e5e-b9e14625XXXX

One of the folder contains DC-000001.vmdk and DC-Snapshot1.vmsn
Other folder contains DC2-000001.vmdk and DC2-Snapshot1.vmsn


Are these safe to delete, or are these still used by SureBackup? Timestamps say 8. oct 2017.

Hi hyvokar.

Generally, all temporary files should be deleted by SureBackup job. I noticed several posts related to old Veeam B&R versions with the similar behavior (it was considered as bug and should be fixed in latest version). You can delete these files but if I were you, I’d rather copy them to the safe location before deleting, just in case. You can also double check with our support team to be completely sure it wont cause any troubles. Thank you.
