Delete a backup archive

Overview

This article provides step-by-step instructions for deleting a backup archive. You should delete a backup archive when you want to discard all of the files backed up to that archive.

Considerations

Deleting Backup Archives
Deleting a backup archive permanently deletes
all backup files stored in the archive. This cannot be reversed.

Steps

  1. Open the Code42 app.
  2. Select settings button Settings.
  3. In Device Preferences, select Destinations.
  4. Select the backup destination whose archive you want to delete.
    Ensure that you still have at least one destination that you are backing up to.
  5. Click Delete Archive.
    Depending on how your administrator has set up your Code42 environment, the Delete Archive button may not appear on the screen or you may not be able to delete the archive.
    Remove destination
  6. In the confirmation dialog, select I understandRemove archive message
  7. Click Remove.
    The backup archive is removed from the destination.
