Clear snapshots

Created: 01 Mar 2010 • Updated: 21 Sep 2010 | 3 comments

Hi,

Im playing around with Backup Exec, and im adding and removing jobs just to see how things work.
I have deleted also B2D* files on the local disk.

When i then now use the Restore, I can see that the restore have information regarding the jobs/files I have created
is there any command/option I can use to remove all the restore options so I dont have information about old jobs, that
I have deleted the B2D* files from.

If I now click Restore choose a server, I can see

28.02.2010 21:00 (Snapshot Full)
28.02.2010 20:00 (Snapshot Full)
28.02.2010 19:00 (Snapshot Full)
28.02.2010 18:00 (Snapshot Full)

I know that I have deleted the files for 18:00 and 19:00 but they are still there, so i guess i have not deleted the the correct
way, but how do i remove them with right click on everyone and choose delete ? And what it the right way to remove a job
and its files.

Regards
Ole

Hi Ole,

They are seen in the Restore location as their information is still in the catalogs.
You will have to delete them out of that in order to clear them completely. In this regard, it isn't a snapshot issue.

Laters!

Hello,

When i then now use the Restore, I can see that the restore have information regarding the jobs/files I have created
This information is present in the Backup Exec Catalogs. Backup Exec keeps the Catalogs for 30 days by default. We can change the configuration by going to TOOLS-->CATALOGS option.

hope this helps...

Its a best practice to have a "Support Contract" with Symantec...
