Delete a backup


You can delete one or more backups associated with either a dataset or a virtual machine.

  1. From the navigation pane, click Recovery.

  2. Select the virtual machine within the dataset that contains the backup you want to delete.

    If you delete a backup associated with a dataset, the backups associated with any virtual machines belonging to that dataset are also deleted. If you delete a backup associated with a virtual machine, only that backup is deleted.

  3. In the Backups pane, select the backup that you want to delete.

  4. Click Delete.

    The Delete Backup dialog displays. You have the option to delete backups for a selected VM or for an entire dataset.

  5. Select the appropriate option, and click Confirm Delete.

    You can view the status of the backup delete operation in the status window.
