Encrypted

Post by lennis40 »

I just noticed that I have 3 backups listed as Encrypted under the backup section of the interface. I am not sure exactly where those are coming from, or what, if anything, I need to do with them? Options are specify password, or remove from backups.

Can you check whether you have enabled data encryption for the corresponding backup jobs?

I do have encryption enabled or all jobs, but only one of them is showing up under Encrypted. The others all appear under Disk.

Any chance those backups were recently imported (yet no password was provided)?

I have not used the import option for any of my backup jobs. This job does have a backup copy job, but import wasn't used in this case.

Any ideas here? Am I able to remove them without issue? The backup job for this VM is completing fine, along with the backup copy job, so I'm not really sure what I would need these for, or again, where they came from.

You can try to remove them from the console first and see whether all your jobs continue to run smoothly.
