How to expire Veeam Backup Jobs

When using Veeam B&R  , if you had to face a situation where you need to expire the old backups to free up some disk space you need to follow slightly a different approach. As mostly in other cases (especially VERITAS) you could simply change the retention period to a lower value and need to  restart the services , you could notice the backup files have been disappeared. In Veeam you need to go through the below steps.

  • Remove the backup files manually (recommended to clear the files created by the last incremental jobs  until you reach to the last full backup).
  • Reduce the backup pointer to a lower value in your backup job.
  • Then you need to start the jobs manually or wait for the next schedule.
