Deleting a Backup Location Without Backup Data

Updated

On this page

You can delete a backup location that does not contain backup data.

If you have shared the backup location with a MediaAgent that is online with write access, then the delete operation deletes the backup location from the CommServe database and the backup location folders from the physical storage. Otherwise, the delete operation deletes only the backup location from the CommServe database. If the backup location is the only backup location in the disk storage, then the software deletes the disk storage along with the backup location.

Procedure

  1. From the navigation, click Storage, and then click Disk.

    The Disk page appears.

  2. Click the disk storage that you want to delete the backup location.

    The disk storage page appears.

  3. In the Backup locations section, for the backup location that you want to delete, click the Actions button , and then click Delete.

  4. Confirm the delete operation.

Result

  • If there are multiple backup locations in the disk storage, the software deletes the specific backup location.

  • If the backup location is the only backup location in the disk storage, then the software deletes the disk storage along with the backup location.
