    Default How to delete a single failed backup

    Hello-
    We're running:
    Release 7.1.4_GA_2555.UBUNTU8 UBUNTU8 NETWORK edition.

    I have a single failed full backup I'd like to delete. I aborted it manually because it was unnecessary and now I'd like to reclaim the disk space.

    The only command I see is zmbackup -del, but I don't want to delete any prior backups. I only want to delete the single backup.

    Does anyone have any idea how to accomplish this? Is it safe to manually remove it from the /backup/sessions directory?

    Thanks!

    What's wrong with using the Admin UI to delete the backup?
    Regards

    Hi Bill-
    The Admin UI (as I see it) doesn't have the ability to delete any backups... single or otherwise. My only options are:

    Refresh | Restore | Backup | Abort | Close

    Are you using 7.1.4 and if so, can you describe where I can find a delete function?

    Thanks

    You're quite right, I must have been having a brainstorm when I posted that reply.

    You can simply delete the directory from the backup folder and it will remove it from the server.
